Jarmel Kizel Architects and Engineers, Inc. was founded by Marvin Jarmel in 1975 as ISS - Interior Space Specialists, Inc. The Firm initially specialized in the interior design of corporate offices and provided design, product procurement and construction management services. In the early 1990's, his two sons, Matthew, an architect, and Richard, an engineer, joined the firm and began to transform it into a general practice of architectural services. Irwin Kizel, an architect and professional planner with vast building experience, joined the firm shortly thereafter.
In March of 2000, to mark the Firm’s 25th anniversary and to show its pride in their work, the principals changed the Firm’s name to Jarmel Kizel Architects and Engineers, Inc.
Today, Jarmel Kizel Architects and Engineers, Inc. is one of the largest, full-service architectural and engineering firms in New Jersey. In 1998, the Firm added a full-service engineering department, which allows it to handle virtually all aspects of both the architectural and engineering components of buildings. In 2006 Jarmel Kizel added Civil Engineering and related services.
The Firm considers itself general practitioners of Architectural and Engineering Services. Specialties include: Commercial Interior Design, Office Building Design, Industrial Building Design, Building Renovation Design for adaptive reuse, Data Center Design and Educational Facility Design. Also, the firm’s principals have extensive experience with the development process and have been qualified as expert witnesses before Municipal Planning and Zoning Boards.

The diverse background of the multi-disciplinary staff allows the Firm to respond quickly and effectively to the needs of our clients.
