Since acquiring full ownership of the practice on January 01, 1997, Dodds has grown the practice to serve all aspects and phases of the architectural practice from design to design development to construction documents to bidding to construction implementation, with many completed works in sectors such as: public school and university projects; churches of varied denominations, various County owned projects, a wide range of commercial-industrial-institutional projects.

With the abundance of lake frontage along the western shores of Michigan's lower peninsula as well as many inland lake shores, the custom designed residential practice has become the cornerstone of the practice. The diversity of both the client and the topography of the lake shore has allowed for great exploration into a variety of residential architectural styles.
