BILTFORM was founded in 2000 with the intent of providing clients with a heightened level of one-on-one service, and an informed sensitivity to economic, aesthetic and functional requirements. The firm’s Principals, Jim Applegate and Vince Scarano recognize every project is shaped by a culmination of unique forces, and they strive through a design team approach with active participation from clients, consultants, contractors and vendors to achieve results with past precedent and forward-thinking innovation.
Mr. Applegate and Mr. Scarano have worked on well over 100,000 housing units collectively, and have provided design services for millions of square feet of office, retail, and residential building types. They have also been actively engaged in urban design, with large scale mixed-use projects in both city and suburban centers. The firm has extensive experience with the complexities of public sector financing through HUD programs, LIHTC, and other federal, state and municipal funding sources. BILTFORM has been chosen three times to represent the City of Phoenix in its prestigious HOPE VI Grant applications.
Mr. Scarano is a LEED Accredited Professional™ and a Certified Green Professional™ with the National Association of Home Builders. BILTFORM actively pursues opportunities to implement green building technology with cost effective practices as they apply to the many different building types and uses.
