Our firm has a diverse background in projects throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia.  Clients trust their projects with HA for multi-family and single family residential, mixed-use, retail, medical offices, and church facility designs.  The success of our projects is due to our in depth process and involvement with our clients, and our drive to achieve a complete understanding of their specific goals and expectations. 

Three dimensional (3D) design is in our DNA and used throughout our entire process.  The firm's commitment to Building Information Modeling (BIM) gives our clients a crystal clear picture of every aspect of their building project.  Utilizing BIM, along with our meticulous attention to detail, allows for superior coordination of the engineered elements of the building such as structure and mechanical systems, leading to more cost efficient designs.  Fewer changes in the field, yields cost savings to our clients.

We address cost management throughout the design process with creative solutions, that have provided a consistent track record of projects that are completed on time and on budget.

President, Bainbridge Construction, LLC

"I want to thank you for being so responsive to our needs, wants and standards!  Most architects complain about what we want versus what they like to draw.  Additionally, most have no clue who we are leasing to and have never had any interaction with tenants in our deals.  So, working with (HA) and your team is a welcome relief.  I hope this is the first of many deals in the future that we will be working together on..."

Jeremy R. Hart

Vice President - Technology Department, SGS Environmental Services

"It was quite evident from the introductory meetings...through the construction process that Shawn's in-depth understanding and involvement in this project were pivotal to our goals being met.  In addition to your professionalism throughout, I think we were equally impressed with your enthusiasm for the project.  That certainly helped given that, although familiar with the laboratory environment, we had never previously undertaken anything of this scope, especially whilst maintaining practically uninterrupted operation of our business." more
