GENIS DESIGN is the culmination of a Washington, DC-based career, beginning in 1969, in architectural design, planning and business development for design and construction. Tom Genis founded GENIS DESIGN Professional Corporation (P.C.) in 2000 as a personal extension of what he had practiced over the previous 10 years. His business card says it all: “Your pre-design, programming and schematic design resource.” Not long into 2000, a trusted professional colleague inquired whether he could produce a “Replacement Reserve Report” for a landmark historic structure in the District of Columbia. This had nothing to do with what his business card read, but he accepted the commission, and that single effort led to several hundred similar successfully executed projects. Specification writing soon followed at the request of another professional colleague. Since 2000, Tom has specialized in these and related areas summarized in the SERVICES tab.


GENIS DESIGN is a DC DSLBD Local, Small and Resident-Owned Certified Business Enterprise (CBE) in the District and is eligible to obtain reciprocal certifications where similar CBE programs are available.


Tom performs all his own work and maintains strong, loyal and long-standing collaborative relationships with design professionals in related disciplines.
