Who we are: Our History, Our Specialty, Our Team

Our History + Healthcare Expertise + Service = Your Satisfaction

Kaim Associates, Inc. (KAI) is a professional architecture firm with extensive staff experience focusing on healthcare needs.  We excel in tailoring our services to provide personal attention to each client, while offering specialized planning and design services unique to each project.

KAI was founded in 1995 by Namer Kaim, AIA, with the goal of providing personal and qualified architectural services to Houston area healthcare clients. Since its inception, and over the ensuing years, the firm has expanded services across Texas on projects that range from clinic build-outs to major medical buildings.

Changing economic times and advances in technology mandate that capital improvement projects be managed by professionals educated in these areas. Skyrocketing construction costs require the efficient planning of available space, balanced with the functional requirements of each space and the optimum materials selected to provide the best value for each construction dollar spent. At KAI, our experience in programming, master-planning, design and construction provides the specialized service that is best represented by our long list of repeat clients.

The goal of Kaim Associates, Inc. is to offer personal, professional service, provide specifically qualified technical design and services, and complete our projects with satisfied clients.


Namer Kaim, AIA


In his previous experience as vice president of a large healthcare oriented architectural firm, Mr. Kaim realized the need for specialized, personal architectural services in the local healthcare marketplace. Stepping out with this vision, he moved from leading a partnership to opening Kaim Associates, Inc. in 1995.

Focusing on Houston area healthcare projects over the last 25 years has afforded Mr. Kaim a unique perspective of planning, design and construction of a multitude of construction projects, and led to expansion across the Texas region. These projects range in scope from new construction–including hospitals and clinics–to minor and major renovations in existing facilities–including acute care and specialty departments. Working in a studio environment, Mr. Kaim, along with his knowledgeable staff, offers each client personal, professional service from initial design to final occupancy.
