It’s human nature to always wonder who you are speaking to. Frankly, with the age of social media we live in, people are constantly stalking others just to be able to put a face to a name.  At Fluent Design Group, we feel no need to make you hunt us out.  Below you will find some pictures of our team working on some projects at their desk.  You can also head over to our MEET THE TEAM page to find out a little more about the individuals that put together this team.

The history of Fluent Design Group is out of the ordinary to most companies, but it is one that has allowed us to create a company that is poised to create some of the best customer services now and into the future.  The original team of Ryan Houser and Jeff Stocklos was put together by one of the areas best and most creative Engineers.  Over that years, the other company owner had become busy with another line of engineering that was truly his love, and he wanted to pursue that full time and stop doing the local work. Fluent Design was then created at the end of 2015, under the direction of Professional Registered Engineer Michael Braithwaite.  The team has been accustomed to creating unique designs and coming up with creative solutions that are not only to standards but also created in the mind of the builder. 

Our new office at 1095 Wood Lane, Langhorne, PA, 19047 has helped transform our service! This space allows builders to host meetings with their clients, review plans and proposals, and even choose some material selections if desired.

Contact Fluent Design if you are a homeowner looking to expand or build a new property, or you’re a commercial customer seeking a fit-out. We also have years of experience working with contractors who are eager to achieve more with their customers.
