Achieve High-End Results

Our team works side by side with clients to ensure their ideas become reality. We help with all aspects of the building process, from generating design concepts, to representing your goals to contractors. We provide clear construction documents to help your contractor understand your requirements.


Uphold Budgets

We continually reinforce to our clients that all things are possible in the construction industry. Thus, client budgets and input from contractors are a vital part of our architectural or interior design process.

We encourage our clients to allow us to work closely with General Contractors to determine overall cost estimates for materials, labor, and services rendered by all parties. Their feedback helps produce a project budget, which is vital in determining an accurate scope of work.

Your budget is continually referenced as a critical tool as the project proceeds. Our team maintains regular communication with clients and contractors to ensure the budgeted parameters are followed, both financially and on time.

Strive for Energy Efficiency

Our industry is changing. Reducing power consumption is now one of the top (3) concerns in the design process of any building. Dalrymple | Sallis Architecture is committed to implementing innovative materials and methods that insure continue to improve the energy efficiency of our buildings.

Mr. Dalrymple’s past work with the National Park Service is a key example or our experience with construction management and “green” building practices.

You’re NOT A STARTUP, and you don’t want to hear the same old stuff:

You’ve got active subcontracts, you’ve set up teaming agreements and even part of the way through Joint Ventures, Mentor-Protege and GSA Schedules.  You’ve got great past performance and you’re building your pipeline.  You’ve got most of your infrastructure in place.  But every time you get past one obstacle, you find out about another one!  You’re especially worried about being locked out of the market because you can’t get on the right contract vehicle!  And all this is costing so much time and money.  We’re determined to help you find the answers you need so you can walk away with an action plan and a broader range of teammates and opportunities.

Don’t miss out – space is limited.

“Michael and Jennifer have been responsible for all press releases and company communication, and serve as my ongoing editing team. There is a reason they have provided communication support for some of the most recognized CEOs in the U.S. – I wouldn’t trade them for the world.” Johnnie Hernandez, entrepreneur and former Fortune 50 executive

Jennifer Rock and Michael Voss have a shared, lifelong passion for storytelling. They have had the good fortune to work for and with companies that span industries and impact, where they have spearheaded global communication strategy and execution for more than 20 years. In 2013, they struck out on their own to form the communications agency ROCKdotVOSS, and to finish their debut novel – “B.S., Incorporated.” The novel has been called “a rich combination of comedy, ingenuity and sass” and was named one of the 10 Best Business Books of 2016 by WealthManagement.com. The book is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks and via RockAndVossBooks.com.

We are storytellers.

Our shared passion for captivating audiences goes back – way back – to when Jennifer published haikus in her first-grade newsletter, and Mike entertained other kids on the school bus with his creative fiction.

Not surprisingly, our jones for storytelling fueled our individual career paths, where we held roles in journalism, advertising, public relations, marketing and corporate communications. Along the way, we had the good fortune to work for and with companies that spanned industries and impact – from privately held start-ups to Fortune 50 powerhouses.

Our paths crossed at Best Buy, where – for more than a decade, we led the Internal Communications function and spearheaded all communications strategy and execution for the company’s 170,000 employees. We counseled and collaborated with senior executives, managed a network of global communication vehicles and events, and developed strategies to ensure the success of complex initiatives such as mergers and acquisitions, international expansion and corporate re-organizations. Somewhere in the midst of it all, we found time to effectively communicate four CEO transitions and build a groundbreaking internal social media program.

Then we struck out on our own, using our combined 40+ years of experience as strategists and communicators to form ROCKdotVOSS – an agency dedicated to helping tell your company’s story.

Because whether you’re looking to boost employee engagement, increase your close rate or entertain the other kids on the bus, it always starts with a great story.
