About JACA Architects
JACA Architects is a 25-employee healthcare architectural firm founded in 1991 by Anthony Cavallaro, AIA, who serves as the company’s president. JACA is uniquely positioned in the architectural market in that there are very few firms specializing in the healthcare/medical design field.
For the past twenty years, Healthcare and Life Science planning and design have been the firm’s only focus. JACA was one of the first firms in the area to incorporate the use of Revit as part of its Building Information Modeling (BIM) toolkit. BIM is a model-based technology linked to a database of project information. This information is parametrically coordinated and can be extracted for specifications, fabrication, project scheduling, facilities management, energy analysis, engineering and construction, LEED, and more.
With clients including BIDMC, Lahey Health, South Coast Hospital and others, JACA is a steadfast source for medical design and consultation, which positions it uniquely in the marketplace. Offices are located at 9 Billings Road, North Quincy, MA. For additional information, please visit www.jacaarchitects.com or call, (617) 769-6300.
