How We Operate
When hdesigngroup was established in 2000, the defined approach was to create relationships. With this as the mission, a decision was made that all projects must revolve around people, and that the people we work with are not just our clients. This has continued to be the defined approach of hdesigngroup, which has in turn shaped the dynamics both inside and outside of the office.
A client is someone who receives a service. The people hdesigngroup works with are collaborative partners with whom goals, concerns, and ideas are shared—with whom eventually designs are brought to fruition. When working with hdesigngroup, individuals are treated like a valued colleague and friend, not a client.
For those of us at hdesigngroup, this means a team atmosphere—wherein every voice is heard, and what is best for the project takes precedence over title or role. For collaborative partners, this means dedication, commitment, communication, loyalty and a steadfast desire to bring your vision to life.
The result is something beyond the usual designer and client interaction. Together spaces are created where communities can truly live, learn, work, and play.
Meet the Team
Embrace agility, think strategically, push the envelope.
Our process is simple and it involves meaningful communication during every stage. Not all projects walk through the same steps, however open and continual communication is the core of all projects on our board. We meet, collaborate, brainstorm, agree, design, advise, commit, act on, and celebrate. Making a project successful for all parties involved is why the team and partnerships of hdesigngroup enjoy the work we do. When working with hdesigngroup, the first foundation built is the relationship...great design follows.
Bidding + Negotiation
Site Evaluation + Selection
Building Condition Audits
hdesigngroup is modest in size, yet bold in its actions. Our team is small enough to be nimble, yet big enough to deliver on complex projects. Due to this, the group is able to maintain an independent morale—allowing flexibility in responsiveness and innovation, while encouraging autonomous passion, group driven accountability, and the occassional office break to hangout with a co-workers at the office.
From the moment hdesigngroup takes a project into the spokes, the internal communication of the vision through each process of design is paramount. All of our projects have a commonality within our office, where we deploy a functional checks and balances system, mitigating potential missteps in all phases of design and construction.
What's really important about hdesigngroup, is that the team listens and works diligently to discover the soul of a business and its brand, and the building that it should exist within. Each project is awarded to a team that is designed for that project specifically. A principal, a project manager, a visual designer, and an architectural technician become a power source for each project that is collaborated on by hdesigngroup.
