Annual Bowling/Golf Event

This is our longest running and biggest fundraising event of the year.

Bring your office, bring your friends, and bring your family for a safe and exciting day of games, raffles, and laughs.

Rebuilding Together

Rebuilding Together is a nonprofit community revitalization organization that Arquitectos partners with every year. We plan several months in advance for a hive of activity for one day, where a deserving family gets a helping hand from the Arquitectos team. Activities range from furniture salvaging, floor patching, painting, fixture replacement, etc. It's a great way to give back to the community, network with people from all parts of the building industry, and challenge ourselves to see how much change we can make in just one day's time.

Scholarship Committee

Every year we hand out a series of scholarships to some of the most talented and deserving students we know.
