History Cornerstone Design, Ltd. â€“ Architects, a Lancaster, Pennsylvania architectural firm with architects who are registered to practice in the Mid-Atlantic and East Coast Regions of the USA, offers extensive experience and talent in both design and construction. Cornerstone Design-Architects specializes in creative and adaptive architectural designs for new construction, renovations, adaptive re-use, redesign, remodeling and additions. Cornerstone also is a local leader in Building Information Modeling (BIM), Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), Sustainable Design & Green Building Principles, and Facilities Information Modeling & Management (FIMM). Cornerstone Design-Architects has grown into a cutting edge, yet client-driven design firm during its 23-year history. Originally incorporated under the name of W.N. Marsh Associates Ltd. Architects in January of 1990 as an affiliate of The Horst Group. February of 1995, the company name was changed to Cornerstone Design Ltd. Architects. In 1997, Dale R. Yoder was named President and became a fifty percent owner of the firm. In May 2007, a new chapter was started as Cornerstone DesignArchitects underwent an ownership restructuring, becoming an employee-owned company with a goal of providing even more dedicated levels of client commitment. Our firm currently consists of Dale R. Yoder, AIA, President and Julie R. Hungarter, Vice President of Operations.
Services & Project Approach In-house services include a full range of architectural services for a wide variety of buildings types, from initial feasibility and programming studies, existing building analyses, code-analysis, schematic design and design development phases, construction documents, bidding and construction process. We are committed to listening to your needs/visions and to understanding your operational procedures and requirements. We will work with you to shape the identified needs and goals into your building design. Throughout the process, we believe it is important to have continued interchange and clear communication. We consider the customer to be key to the partnership to help us evaluate the most important criteria between cost, schedule, and quality. Together we will design a facility that meets or exceeds your expectation.
Staff Currently the firm employs 10 staff members; 2 Registered Architects, 1 Project Managers, 4 Draftspersons, 1 Business Manager, 1 Marketing Coordinator and 1 parttime Administration. When projects require additional expertise, consultants are hired to meet the needs of the project. We assure that the most qualified and cost effective professionals become part of the team by soliciting requests for proposals from several firms.
Computer Capability In our desire to stay on the cutting edge of technology, we have utilized Autodesk® Revit® Architecture since 2006 and have fully integrated Building Information Modeling (BIM) into our architectural design process. Revit® represents the next generation in computer aided design. It melds the 2D and 3D worlds and creates a comprehensive database that describes the proposed building. Revit® allows us to design, visualize and document in a more coordinated way with greater productivity and more accurate and complete construction documents. We are able to three-dimensionally model the structural, mechanical, and electrical building components and incorporate them into our architectural model. In addition to Revit®, we utilize Adobe® Photoshop® software to produce photo-realistic renderings and animations. Both interior and exterior models can be generated to show perspective views. The use of computer generated renderings enables visualization of various materials and finishes to enhance one’s visualization of the proposed design throughout the entire process. We are also fully AutoCAD® capable and can import and export AutoCAD® drawing files to our Revit® (BIM) platform as needed.
Green Design Services As the need for more environmentally conscious design has emerged in the design and construction industry, the need for architects to respond to the vision of our client's needs has increased. Sustainable design is not only a responsive process intended to mitigate the impact of buildings and their corresponding sites on the environment, but sustainable design also meets the needs of the occupants of buildings and spaces. Utilizing concepts such as natural daylighting, indoor air quality monitoring, and providing interior lighting and thermal controls serves to enhance the experience of building occupants. Although we have submitted numerous projects for LEED® certification which are in their final stages, our approach is to apply green design principals where it makes economic and/or represents the client’s desire to be good stewards of our natural resources. We no longer provide services for a LEED® accredited professional to lead the submission process. Our mission is to responsively and creatively design facilities of significance. If our client's vision includes incorporating sustainable design principles, Cornerstone DesignArchitects will lead the design team in finding solutions that respond to our client's vision and intentions for their facility. We also believe that designing facilities that consume less energy, reduce overall operational costs, and minimize their impact on the surrounding environment is the correct approach to design and an approach that creates a more enjoyable space to occupy.

Market Area Cornerstone has be involved in projects all over the Mid-Atlantic states, with an emphasis on Southeastern and Central Pennsylvania. Cornerstone has worked on projects in the following states: Florida Maryland New Jersey New York North Carolina Pennsylvania West Virginia
Integrated Design & Construction A design/build approach utilizes a contractual agreement with the contractor, who in turn contracts with us, the Architect...allowing you as a customer to have one source of responsibility to service both your design and construction needs. Cornerstone Design-Architects understands how to work with a construction company. A healthy tension exists in this partnership that, on one hand, provides cost controls and analysis by the contractor during the design process. On the other hand, it enables Cornerstone Design - Architects to be an advocate for the client's aesthetical desires and functional relationships. The product of this partnership is a quality design, with pleasing aesthetics, that is aligned with the client's established budget and needs. We understand that we are design professionals, not estimators. This partnership removes a common pitfall where projects meet the needs of the client but not the budget. Mutual respect between both architect and contractor ensure that value engineering and decision-making in relation to costs, schedule and quality is readily achieved. Equally important is that this approach eliminates traditional adversarial roles, replacing them with team spiritedness and mutual advocacy. It is a win-win relationship for all.
Traditional Design/Bid Services Cornerstone Design - Architects also provides services for the traditional approach to design and construction services. When a client prefers to have plans and specifications prepared for negotiated or competitively bid construction services, we provide those construction documents. In preparing them, the client benefits from the knowledge about costs and construction methodologies that we gain by our frequent partnering with construction professionals. If our clients desire, we can secure estimating services from our sister company to provide accurate budget and cost estimates, during schematic & design development phases.
Other Design & Construction Delivery Cornerstone Design - Architects also has worked with other approaches to provide design and construction services and can advise you about other methods which may be appropriate for you.

Responsive to Your Needs and Desires Our Mission Statement is “To responsively and creatively design facilities of significance”. This project is all about you and your needs, not about our personal ambitions or an architect’s own concept of what he or she thinks is best for you. Our role is to be responsive to your needs and design to facilitate those needs by planning that is responsive and right for you.
Creatively Budget Conscious In all projects, we strive to produce creative designs, within the very real limitations of the budget. Creativity can take place in even the small decisions that enhance one’s experience and function in a building, even if the user is not conscious of the value provided.
Collaborative Approach We are well versed in working on a collaborative basis with the entire range of design and construction professionals. We welcome and encourage the participation of a Construction Professional (General Contractor or Construction Manager) as early as possible in the design process. We know that as Architects, we tend to be overly optimistic about what your construction dollars will be able to buy. A Construction Professional has a much better grasp on the issues of construction cost and schedule. There needs to be a healthy tension between function and aesthetics (Architect) and cost, schedule and constructability (General Contractor or Construction Manager). We welcome and desire their input throughout the design process.
Use of Cutting Edge Design Software Tools This project will be developed in Autodesk® Revit® Architecture, a Building Information Modeling (BIM) software package. Revit® represents the next generation in computer aided design. It melds the 2D and 3D worlds and creates a comprehensive database that describes the proposed building. Revit® allows us to design, visualize and document in a more coordinated way with greater productivity resulting in more accurate and complete construction documents. Cornerstone Design-Architects is inputting project information into our software database that enables coordination in the third dimension, as well as, the output of three dimensional views and images. Changes are made bidirectionally and the software will automatically track and change other areas in the documents that are affected by the change.

Lancaster Mennonite Schools “Lancaster Mennonite School has used the design services of Dale Yoder and Cornerstone Design-Architects for several projects at Lancaster Mennonite High School and at the Locust Grove campus. We are pleased that the end product has met our needs and vision. The quality of design was possible because Cornerstone engaged in careful listening to the school's needs. In addition, they asked the kind of questions that enabled us to improve the educational specifications for each facility. Through this process Cornerstone understood our needs and vision and was able to design value engineered buildings that are enabling us to more fully meet student needs.” —Richard Thomas, Superintendent of Lancaster Mennonite Schools Lancaster Bible College “Cornerstone Design has been exemplary in vigilant design partnership with LBC. They have provided innovative expertise, insight and the pursuit of value engineering to assure our project was within expected parameters of cost and delivery. The end result is a flagship residence facility on our campus. All of this effort is achieved under the most rigorous exercise of integrity on Cornerstone's part. We look forward to future projects with Dale and his team as a continuing part of our team.” —John Zeswitz, Former Vice President Administration Christ the King Church “On behalf of our Working Group and our entire congregation, I would like to thank you for your presentation last night. The slide presentation gave our congregation a good overview of what we have been working on/toward the past few months and the energy Dale brought to it was wonderful. Dale, thank you for your enthusiasm and encouraging closing statements. We have enjoyed working with you on this process and are excited to see the next steps that God has not only for Christ the King Church but also for our journey with Cornerstone Design." —Rebecca Kirkland, Working Group Contact Palm Lutheran Church “While I am not a member of your congregation, I am a member of the Palmyra area community. Let me take this opportunity to commend you for the wonderful job you have done with the addition to your church building. The design of the addition allows it blend so well with the older church while complementing it and at the same time it is so well suited to the space. The new structure projects a liturgical presence at an important location in the center of the community. Your efforts to enhance our community are noticed and appreciated. I have attended various events at the church and look forward to doing so again in the future.” —Elaine Gryboski, Visitor to Palm Lutheran Crossroads Community Church “We again would like to thank you and wish you well. As you are aware, this is the first phase of this project. Not knowing when He will have us move forward on the next phase, you can be assured that you and your company will be discussed in a very favorable way to move us forward again. May the Lord bless you.” —Board of Overseers
Grace Community Church "Grace Community Church chose Cornerstone DesignArchitects after interviewing several other design firms. During the selection process, our team focused on making certain that the different firms understand our purpose, our culture, and lastly how we intended to use our new ministry site. It became very evident that Cornerstone and their staff were listening to our needs, and engaging us to help them better understand our ministry. Our project came in on time, on spec, and on budget. The building is an inviting place for visitors to the ministry, and works to support our activities in the community. We are currently embarking on phase 2 of our construction master plan with Cornerstone." —Allan Osterwise, Executive Pastor West Chester United Methodist Church "This is the nicest church building I have ever seen!" a recent visitor said at one of our church services. Our building has been transformed into a church that is appreciated by not only the congregation, but the entire community. It has literally transformed the way we do ministry. Working with Cornerstone Design Architects was a pleasure from the beginning to the end. Their staff was open to the needs and input from the congregation, and yet offered critical suggestions. We will work with them on all future building projects.” —Reverend John Schol, Senior Pastor Cross Roads Brethren in Christ Church “I want to thank you for all of your patient work with this church. You have proven to be a faithful, understanding and godly friend to the church in the midst of some very confusing and frustrating times and changes. You have stayed the course with us, and I praise God and am grateful to you for that. I also have appreciated your honesty with us, and your skillfulness.” —Carl Shank, Administration Pastor Stillmeadow Church of the Nazarene “The relationship between Cornerstone DesignArchitects, Inc. and the Stillmeadow Church of the Nazarene has been a success. The success is measured in the care, the communication, understanding and listening skills brought to the table by the Cornerstone Staff. These coupled with Cornerstone’s understanding of churches and their needs, along with the impact of a church’s theology on the design make this a successful partnership. Thank you for helping us to achieve functional facilities that meet the needs of our congregation. Our facilities have achieved the balance between cost and functionality and communicate the purpose of the facility through the thoughts and talents of your staff. We look forward to our continued partnership on future projects.” —Kent Vandervort, Pastor ~ Administration, Facilities, and Media New Holland Church of the Nazarene “Thanks for all your work. We are pleased with what you've provided and will definitely work with you in the future.” —Steve Kindt, Executive Pastor
