For Us, It’s Personal

Charlotte isn’t simply a place where we do business; it’s the city we call “home.” Each one of us is personally invested in bringing solutions that enhance the lives of our neighbors, our friends, our families, and everyone we interact with in both large and small ways as we run errands, cheer on soccer games, and head home at the end of the day.

We love what we do—which is taking our decades of global experience and using it to solve the challenges that are unique to our local communities. We’re proud of our national rankings as a premier architecture and engineering firm, but what we’re most proud of is knowing that we are helping to build better lives and more vibrant communities. Because, for us, it’s more than a job. It’s personal.
