HGA Architects and Engineers

About Us

It is no small thing to leave a mark on the world.

Our goal is to create a company and culture where everyone–employees and clients–can do the best work of their lives. We value empathy, are fueled by curiosity, and embrace the hard work that leads to innovation. For the people who work, learn, heal, serve and gather in the spaces we shape, our goal is to exceed expectations—today, tomorrow and into the future.

Curiosity is the root of our creativity.

We follow an innovative research-based approach to design. Our work is always built upon a foundation of unique insight into client needs. To develop that insight, our process includes monitoring broad social and technological developments, researching market-specific challenges, delving deeply into our clients’ organizations, and employing a host of tools to understand what is critical to the quality of our work with each client. Upon this foundation of fresh understanding, we help clients create purposeful design with an enduring impact.

Forward-thinking, even way back.

Our founding principals Richard Hammel, Curt Green and Bruce Abrahamson established a commitment to superb modern design through a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to meeting and exceeding expectations. From their first basement office in 1953 to our national presence today, the firm has helped shape culture, business and society by consistently creating forward-thinking design solutions for clients and communities.
