About us

What is AIP?

AIP Design (Architects in Partnership), Inc is a Florida based professional firm dedicated to quality architecture since 1973. Our architecture services cover religious, commercial, industrial, residential, educational and institutional projects.

Our staff are licensed to practice in many states, well trained in LEED designs, and possess extensive knowledge of zoning and building codes. Our clients’ needs and wishes are adroitly transformed into construction documents for all permits and construction execution. Our professional team analyzes our clients’ desires and creates a viable and economical solution under the direct involvement of our principals.

Our Mission

Since its inception in 1973, AIP has maintained a reputation for quality in the areas of Architecture Planning and Construction Management.

It is our mission to continue providing the type of personalized service that has helped establish our reputation.

Company Information

Our office is located on SRĀ 436, Winter ParkĀ Florida, between Aloma Ave. and Howell Branch Rd. The principal, Ernesto Gonzalez-Chavez, has upheld the integrity of the firm throughout the years. Our staff is comprised of a solid team of professionals that bring together a broad range of talent and experience. Our quality of service has allowed us to garner many long-time repeat clients.

We focus on the disciplines of Architecture, Construction Services, Planning and Interiors.


In addition to Architecture, AIP provides Planning, Construction Management, Architectural Engineering, Contract Management, Interior Planning and Consulting Services. We have performed the planning for many projects which have resulted in a more efficient use of the land, as well as a lower construction cost from modifying the least amount of land necessary. Which sets a favorable tone with the surrounding property owners.

We also provide special services such as Owner Representation to absent owners. We have become adept at coordinating with outside design professionals, when necessary, while still overseeing every aspect of the project.

Cost Savings Methodology

We only select and specify materials that do not go beyond the needs of the client for the specific function.

In addition, we analyze every building component for the maximum use and select items that the owner can purchase directly thereby reducing the contractors’ soft cost.

During the design process, we constantly check with tradespeople to learn new system applications that might decrease the total project cost.

General Experience Overview

Our portfolio includes a myriad of projects including Religious Facilities, Athletic Facilities, Commercial Buildings, Tourist Attractions and Assisted Living Facilities.

Our goal is to provide a low-cost, high-quality end result. We achieve this by combining our years of technical experience with extensive knowledge of cost saving techniques.

Collectively, our Architects have more than a century of combined experience. Many have knowledge in more than just architecture, allowing our firm to offer many different perspectives on every aspect of a project.
