About Architectural Development Services

Architectural Development Services Inc. (A.D.S. Inc) was created in 1993 by architect Bryan C. Tom and is based in Brookfield Wisconsin.  A.D.S Inc focuses on residential and small commercial projects in the South-Eastern area of Wisconsin.  Primarily known for new high-end residential work, A.D.S. Inc is also involved with remodeling, additions, renovations, and consulting for both residential and commercial projects.  The company provides individualized architectural services to suit each client’s needs depending on the scope of project or services desired.

The Construction Documents that we create for each project provides a complete set of construction drawings to be used by a builder to construct the project.  The construction drawings will also be used to secure a building permit from the local municipality and for architectural review if it is required.  If your needs require more than Design and Construction Documents, we also provide assistance in selecting a builder.  Some additional services we provide include aiding in reviewing builder bid proposals and construction supervision while the project is being built.

Principal and owner, architect Bryan C. Tom AIA designs in a variety of styles and has a broad base of ability to create a design to suite each client’s needs.  Through reading, classes and travel destinations, Mr. Tom has studied in-depth the various styles of architecture to better understand the specific design characteristics of each.  He is constantly researching the field of architecture to stay up-to-date with code revisions and current trends.  He is also involved in the concept of Green Building and the ideology behind it.  Staying current with new building products, technology, and construction practices are a daily task.  Mr. Tom’s career started as a carpenter’s apprentice before pursuing his degree in Architecture from UW Milwaukee.  He is a licensed Wisconsin architect and a member of AIA, BBB, WBA, and MBA.  As a member of the Metropolitan Builders Assoc. he is part of the Green Build Council, Code Council, and Construction Arbitration sub-committees and has earned the Certified Construction Professional (CCP) designation.
