AKEA, Inc. and AKEA Design, Inc. are minority-owned, verified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses.
AKEA began as a one-man Environmental Services and Architectural and Engineering company in 2002, by Air Force Veteran and Professional Engineer Anthony J. Kwan. The company was formed to provide engineering services to government and private companies in Florida and the Southeastern United States.
AKEA Design, Inc. was established as a separate descendant company of AKEA, Inc. in 2011, when management decided to formally separate the design and construction functions of the business. AKEA, Inc. and AKEA Design, Inc. have established their reputations in their respective industries by providing quality services during every phase of every project, resulting in winning repeat business from our diverse client base.
AKEA’s mission is to provide comprehensive solutions for our clients while maintaining the highest quality standards in our work. We strive to provide our customers with the best service, products, and experience possible. We employ collaborative, experienced, localized teamwork across both companies to maintain the utmost professionalism and ensure projects are completed on time and within budget. We believe in honoring our commitments and in open, honest, and respectful communication during all phases of a project. We utilize innovative technologies and proven management systems to deliver quality products and services to our customers.
Our long-term vision for both AKEA, Inc. and AKEA Design, Inc. is to be recognized as highly competitive architectural, engineering, and construction firms in the Southeastern United States.
Our Core Values
- Commitment to Quality

- Commitment to Collaboration

AJ will tell anyone who asks him why he started the company: “to make money, sure, but more importantly to give our veterans the best possible medical facilities and the best designs and construction services we can. Our country owes them a debt and AKEA, Inc. and AKEA Design, Inc. are there to fulfill that debt.”
The goal of both companies is twofold: to make AKEA staff an extension of the client’s staff and to make our clients look good to their bosses. A smoothly run, efficient, timely-completed project makes everyone happy, and we strive to achieve customer satisfaction in all we do.
