I am the principle Architect at Tim W. Cooper Architect PA.  I began my studies with a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management from the University of Louisiana – Monroe, which has helped shaped the philosophy of my firm.  Having this knowledge of the construction industry, I was able to really take advantage of my Degree in Architecture from the University of Arkansas. I fulfilled my internship with an architect in Jonesboro, Arkansas where I worked on a number of projects; public school facilities, detention centers, banks, and medical offices. 


Tim W. Cooper Architect was established in 2001.  Understanding both construction and architecture, and how they two are brought together in the design process, I am able to value engineer major building systems during the design phase instead of waiting until the project has gone out for bid.  Keeping up with square foot and unit cost as the process moves forward helps the owner make good decisions about which systems are best for them on a particular project based on real time estimates.  I design with the knowledge of knowing how things are built and what costs will be associated with design decisions.  It is with this background and experience that has allowed design and build small renovations to large-scale master planned projects.
