C.J. Falconer & Associates (CJFA) are a design, technical, and innovation-led architectural practice – Registered Practice with the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland, and registered Members of the Royal Institute of British Architects.
Established in 1986 by Christopher John Falconer, over three decades the Practice has grown organically – with Partners Gary Falconer, and Juneanne Falconer – through developing design technologies; with CJFA currently acting as specialists in CAD, REVIT, and the delivery of Level 2 BIM design.
Originating from Waterford City, today CJFA employs over thirty talented, qualified, and international, Architects, Technologists and Designers, with generations of experience – operating locally, nationally, and internationally with the addition of offices in Dublin – working in all sectors, and all project types, for both Public and Private clients.
As a design, technical, and innovation-led Practice, CJFA is adept in providing services in-addition to core Architectural services; lending itself to a culture of ‘Architecture +’.
Part of this ethos, is CJFA’s commitment to the research, implementation, and innovation of developing design technologies, and 3D-visualisations. The CJFA Modelshop integrates the use of laser-cutting, 3D-printing technology, point-cloud, and drone-technology into the architectural design process – allowing rapid-prototyping of building models, completed in combination with 3D-visualisations; helping to realise and access projects, from conception to completion.
Design-aiding technologies such as these are integral to our creative process; facilitating 3D models, and 3D-visualisations. CJFA are a leading Irish Practice in the implementation of BIM design – adopting a practice-wide integration in 2013; and currently one of the only firms in the country delivering to BIM Level 2 compliance (the currently recognised highest BIM milestone, and a growing requirement for projects internationally).
