About Us

Finding Inspiration At Every Turn

Of all the ways MLM measures success, client satisfaction is the ultimate metric by enhancing the experiences of end users keeping both the immediate
and distant future in mind.

Our Story

Over the course of our 30 years, MLM’s success is greatly attributed to the direct involvement of the current Principals, Miguel L. Martin, AIA ("Sr.") and Miguel A. Martin, AIA, Assoc. ASHRAE ("Jr."), with our clients in the day-to-day affairs of our design projects. Father and son partners, MLM is a family-run company with incredible dedication and forethought put into each and every unique project for the success of our clients; many of whom are repeat clients. 

 

Our firm began with Architect Miguel Lazaro Martin, AIA, working as a solo practitioner in 1981. As the practice grew, the corporate entity was formed to provide greater services with its concentration on the aviation and public sectors with the addition of two architect partners under the name of Perez & Perez/Martin, Inc. in 1992. In 1997, Miguel L. Martin, AIA bought-out the partners and became the President of the company to focus even more intensely on local Central Florida projects. The firm was then renamed MLM-Martin Architects, Inc. ("MLM") to reflect the change.

 

In 2017, MLM welcomed Miguel A. Martin, AIA, Assoc. ASHRAE, to our 11-person firm as a Principal and Vice President of the corporation. Miguel A. greatly expanded the practice in our specialty areas: aviation services, governmental services to public clients, K-12 education, and utilities/central energy/chiller plants which he is intimately familiar having an engineering background.  

 

MLM is passionate about Central Florida where we are deeply invested, but have also expanded our services all over the State of Florida and Out of State.

 

Our minority certification is a wonderful compliment to our incredibly talented and experienced team on projects both large and small. 

What We Do

MLM-Martin Architects, Inc. celebrates our 30th corporate anniversary this year and we have seen the transformation of the A/E/C profession project delivery from hand drafting to our present BIM 3-D Models hosted in the cloud.

MLM is widely known in the community for having tight construction documents and open communication for overall project Design, Project Management, Construction Administration, Quality Assurance during design and Quality Control during construction. Our experience in design and construction goes back to 1986. From a project's onset, MLM creates a shared vision with our clients and implements this vision with our team's technical know-how and our proven ability to work with a large team of hand-picked, specialized consultants. Our collaboration process extends to all Authorities Having Jurisdiction on our projects with careful, thoughtful building design.

Our broad practice is fertile ground for the crosspollination of design ideas, concepts, and knowledge that can be applied to our client's projects. MLM has demonstrated this time and time again to our repeat clients.
