For International Women’s Day this year, we want to celebrate Dwyer Architectural, the women-owned firm with locations in Syracuse, Rochester, and Buffalo, New York. Established in 2010, their nineteen-person firm has worked tirelessly within the healthcare, medical research, and higher education fields to create stunning designs for their clients. In 2013, they applied for and were accepted into the New York State Minority and Women Business Development (NY MWBE) program, allowing them to become a certified women-owned firm, a change that has helped them make a name for themselves within the architecture industry.
