EHDanson Associates has provided architectural services to clients across Vermont and New England for more than 3 decades. Originally founded by Steve Danforth in 1987, our small firm has continued to produce quality work for corporate and individual clients alike. Roy Ward, Principal, took over the company in 2000, and has worked diligently to continue to build EHDanson into the personable and honest company of client oriented services that it is today.


Here at EHDanson, in the historic 1860 Franklin Fairbanks house, we are enthusiastic and committed to the projects we have the opportunity to work on. Projects begin with people who have vision and purpose. We want our clients to know we are invested in seeing their vision become a reality. We believe people are the most important component to every project we take on, large or small, from the client who hires us to the contractor in the field. With our team's combined knowledge and ability, we offer decades of professional experience. We are small enough to provide personalized service, yet large enough to handle the various complexities and deadlines of your bigger projects. Here at EHDanson, we strive for excellence.
