The principals of Johnson Smitthipong & Rosamond Associates, Inc. have committed their professional careers to providing architectural services for Native American tribes, nations and the Indian Health Service.
Our practice is strongly focused in the design of health care and other public facilities. We have firsthand experience in developing PJD (Project Justification Document) and POR (Program of Requirements) documents, based on the latest version of the IHS HSP (Health System Planning) process, and the IHS Facilities Budget Estimating System.
Our commitment encompasses the principle of providing design excellence through interactive design work sessions with the user staff as well as members of the community at large. We also believe strongly in the value of being good listeners and have a commitment to providing excellent services.
Johnson Smitthipong & Rosamond Associates, Inc. is familiar with the Tribal Employment Rights Office (TERO) and TERO guidelines, and regularly incorporates TERO requirements into its project specifications. During construction phases, the JSRa Construction Administration service monitors the construction contractor(s) to assure compliance with TERO requirements.
