The Century A&E lobby

The Century A&E lobby

Century A&E was established in February 2000 by partners Daniel J. Esch, P.E., Darrell M. Mason, AIA, William T. Rose, P.E., and Matthew A. Tipping, P.E. Since then a new partner, Stephen F. Aman has joined them. The firm has grown steadily.

Century A&E has performed design and construction management work on hundreds of projects for over a hundred clients in Michigan. Experience includes industrial, institutional, health care and commercial projects in the form of new facilities, building additions, and system renovations alike. Our employees bring with them many years of experience in facilities design consulting.

We have completed numerous projects with various delivery methods such as, construction management and design/build. For our clients that are interested in the design/build approach, we have had success in what we call Informed Design Build.

Our Philosophy

Century A&E’s philosophy is reflected within several goals: 

  • Our success is dependent upon our customer’s satisfaction. To achieve this, Century A&E strives to develop close working relationships with our clients.


  • We strive to be a full service company, offering all design disciplines from one firm.  With single source accountability, we eliminate conflict in division of responsibilities and uncertainty that can come with the hiring of sub-consultants unknown to the owner.


  • To offer unparalleled service to our clients of high caliber with highly skilled professionals who are experienced, knowledgeable, and responsive. In accomplishing this goal Century A&E has assembled a quality team with the experience, education and knowledge to apply to our clients’ projects.

Century A&E is dedicated to creating a work environment that fosters employee satisfaction. To this end Century A&E is structured as an employee owned company which we believe nurtures devoted and reliable employees who are focused on our success.
