Gridley was founded by architects and professors of architecture that knew there were better ways to build.
The managing partners of Gridley have been teaching architecture for over half a century. Both partners were hired by their respective schools to bring state-of-the-art technologies into the classroom, and they earned their tenures based on those successes.
Staff members at Gridely are the selected from only the highest-preforming individuals in those classrooms. Often, these best-of-the best first work several years in traditional practices before building the kind of experience necessary to join our team.
