Building Design

We combine art and science to rethink, refine and reshape the built environment. From schools and courthouses to multi-family housing and healthcare facilities, our robust team has a long history of public and private work and has developed an approach to designing high-performance buildings that promotes energy conservation and green building principles.

We will be your trusted advisor and believe in design that responds to the natural environment, surrounding buildings, and community values. Our engineers, architects and designers will skillfully merge engineering, environmental, architectural, functional, and economic considerations when developing project solutions. We’ll be your guide through a process that involves gathering stakeholder input and balancing your needs and wants with amazing possibilities.

CHA is a different kind of design firm. When you combine our passion, responsiveness, resources, expertise, and commitment to building relationships with our clients, the result is amazing design that exceeds expectations.
