About Us...

 



Elemental Design, LLC was established in July 2009 to provide nationwide consulting and interior design services.  Elemental Design’s staff of licensed and registered interior designers and architects has over 150 years of diversified experience in architectural design, facilities programming, space planning, interior design, interior detail development, furniture planning and specifications for corporate clients and federal agencies.  Our designers have programmed and space planned hundreds of thousands of square feet of corporate and governmental space in their careers.  Project sizes have ranged from one office to 950,000sf. 

Our designers work within the parameters of allowable square footage and standards to provide a highly efficient, well designed and pleasant workspace for the end users.  Our familiarity with federal protocols streamlines the design process while our attention to detail, integrity and communication ensure success.  The design team is well versed in working with life safety codes in conjunction with the appropriate federal agency standards such as GSA, US Courts, US Marshals, Dept. of Homeland Security, Internal Revenue Service & Social Security Administration. 

Principal Suzanne (Dummer) Stafford has over 25 years of diversified experience managing interior services for government and commercial entities with project size ranging up to 236,000 square feet.  She has been responsible for the successful relocations of major governmental agency headquarters to new or remodeled locations with increased efficiency and is noted for being an expert in programming and space planning.  Ms. Stafford has ten years of experience managing projects procured under individual contract, facilities work orders and multi-year Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts throughout GSA Reg 4 (FL, NC, SC, KY, TN, GA, AL); Reg 7 (TX, OK, LA, AR, NM); Reg 9 (CA, NV, AZ, HI) & Reg 5 (IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, WI).     *work with previous firm
