A Fully Integrated Team, Under One Roof.
Bread Loaf provides Planning, Design, Pre-construction and Construction services to clients throughout Vermont, Northern New England and Northeastern New York.

Our integrated team of historic preservation specialists, architects, engineers, construction managers and cost estimators takes a holistic approach to finding innovative solutions to maintain sensitivity to detail and historic preservation while improving the function and comfort of historic buildings.
Sustainable Building at its Highest Level
At Bread Loaf, we foster an awareness that historic preservation is sustainable building at its highest level. Many of our project team members are LEED™ Accredited Professionals. By understanding the embodied energy of existing structures and incorporating it into each project solution, Bread Loaf combines its preservation and ‘green’ experience to produce the highest level of historic and sustainable building.
Integrated Project ManagementSM (IPM) merges planning, architecture, engineering, construction management and construction into one cohesive approach to creating exceptional projects.
How it starts
Beginning at the early stages of project planning, collaboration of design and construction professionals benefit our clients by managing project goals, design, schedule and budget simultaneously.
What are the benefits?
Together with our clients, we design, develop and implement building solutions that are socially, ecologically and economically responsible.
Leveraging the expertise and knowledge of Bread Loaf’s multidisciplinary team enables innovative design and construction strategies to be developed revealing underlying opportunities in each unique project.
“Where Do I Start?”
All of our clients have different needs. Our planners are skilled at working with clients from the earliest stages of a project to help them:
- Develop a detailed project program
- Explore design alternatives
- Capture all costs associated with the project
- Develop a detailed timeline for design, permitting and construction
The discussions and documents developed during Bread Loaf’s planning process form the foundation to make informed decisions and lay the groundwork for a successful design and construction process.
From Concept to Construction
Unlike many Architecture firms, Bread Loaf staffs every project with a fully integrated team. We provide complete architectural and preconstruction services from Conceptual Design through Construction Documents.
At the onset of design services,Bread Loaf’s in-house team includes architects, engineers, estimators, construction managers and field superintendents. Together with the Owner, our team will evaluate each decision that needs to be made considering comfort, cost and value, constructability, usefulness and aesthetics. Our architects will be in constant contact with their teammates and will be able to provide to you ‘real-time’ project information, allowing you to make balanced, cost-effective, timely decisions for your project.
