ABOUT VINCENT MYERS:
Vincent Myers is President and co-founding member of DIGroupArchitecture, an award-winning design firm headquartered in New Brunswick, New Jersey. He has helped grow the firm to include a rich, diverse portfolio of projects for senior living, healthcare, civic and education clients throughout New Jersey, New York and the Greater Philadelphia Area.
DIGroupArchitecture is one of the area’s largest minority-owned and disadvantaged (MBE-DBE) architectural firms specializing in architecture, planning, interior design and environmental graphics, signage and wayfinding services for Education, Healthcare, Senior Living and Civic clients. The firm is known for regenerating urban areas through redevelopment, preservation, adaptive reuse and new construction. The company takes great pride in its ethnically and culturally diverse staff who are passionate about architecture.
DIG originated as a consortium of several small architectural firms who formed an alliance to collaborate and compete for large projects issued by the NJ Schools Development Authority that revitalized the state’s most under-served public school districts. This collaboration became so successful at delivering many of the state’s most significant, community-centered design projects that the firms formally merged in 2006. The profound impact these projects had on the most basic human need of health and wellness, brought a whole new meaning and purpose to the firm. From that point forward, “Architecture for Change” became our story, design philosophy and commitment to clients to re-imagine structures and environments to unite people, enhance well-being and enrich communities.
Today, DIGroupArchitecture is exponentially growing; its reach spanning New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York.
