GenOne Architectural Group - About Us

There's no one word that best describes Gen1 Architectural Group. We prefer to let our work speak for itself, and what those finished projects display is passion, quality, integrity, and experience. We stake our reputation on every design we create.

Gen1 Architectural Group is a re-organization of the firm of VerBurg + Associates, which was responsible for many high-quality commercial projects in the West Michigan Area since 1982. Two of the key players from VerBurg + Associates, David VerBurg and Edward Zwyghuizen, have formed Gen1 Architectural Group to continue their tradition of design excellence and innovation.

Celebrating over 30 years of in-depth experience, Gen1 Architectural Group and VerBurg + Associates has emerged as a proven design leader in the Western Michigan Community.

Our extensive and varied experience gives us the ability to offer unsurpassed design services. Whether it's a new commercial building or the custom home of your dreams, Gen1 can create a design to exceed all expectations. Our horticultural and landscape design expertise then puts the finishing touch on any project.

A new building, commercial or residential, is often the largest single investment many of us will ever make; we approach our design work without ever forgetting this. We offer creative, imaginative approaches and solutions to meet your every design need, but our job isn't done when we hand over a design plan; a plan on paper is just part of the process for Gen1. We give you professional guidance throughout every phase of your project's construction, including planning, design, and construction. We provide a service and a product to give you, the client, the best possible design solution.

We take the time to analyze and define your needs and desires, as well as factor in budgetary requirements. We then develop and revise the design with your full involvement, coordinate the permit process, and monitor construction with regular on-site visits so that the project is built according to all plans and specifications. Consistent, reliable communication between Gen1, the client, and all involved construction parties is critical to creating a finished building that meets, and exceeds, the clients' every expectation.

Please take the time to call or email to set up an appointment; we would love to hear your ideas, dreams, and design needs and discuss how our personal service can help translate them into reality.
