Joppa Design owners, Jivonne Alley and Noel Ochtman, met while attending the architecture program at the Rhode Island School of Design. Each graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Architecture, Jivonne pursued a career in architectural firms while Noel chose to hone his skills in the construction field. Their independent experiences paved the way for a shared vision — one based on the premise that design and construction should work in tandem to provide a more efficient, reliable, and reassuring experience for the customer. In 1998, they made their vision a reality with the creation of Joppa Design.
Since then, they’ve earned scores of projects around New England, and a reputation for providing their clients a seamless transition from design through construction. With each job, they’ve gained new insights, skills, and perspectives to apply to your project. With every year, they discover new resources for ideas and materials…and with each relationship, they’ve gained happy customers, and in many cases, good friends.
