A Design-Build firm serving the Southeast with humble roots

Flagala is a design build firm serving the Southeast in the field of architecture, interior design and project construction.  The origins of Flagala date back to its 1965 founding as a general contracting company.  The company began to evolve in 1997 when Architect Joseph D. Bishop and his wife and interior designer, Skye Staten, both partners in ECO Design Associates, purchased Flagala.  The merging of Eco Design with Flagala gave rise to a multi-faceted design-build firm.
