Veterinary Architect

HDA Architects and our staff have been working with Veterinarians across the South Atlantic region for over 35 years. The changes and innovations we have seen in animal health have been breathtaking. Everything from the conception and development of the feline only practice, to the treatment of exotics, to the Fear Free program, and the boom in specialty boarding, has driven the design of the animal hospitals. It has been an amazing time to be a veterinary architect.

There are many options available to the practitioner today. We have an equipment specialist on staff to guide and assist in the selection and ordering of all the equipment. We bring not just years of experience to animal hospital design, but hundreds of successful projects. Our role is that of the advocate of the owner. Through all phases of the design, planning, pricing, and construction of your project we protect your interests and your investment, ensuring success. We can’t imagine there being any kind of a successful animal hospital prototype. Every hospital we design is unique and tailored specifically to that practice. Give us a call, and put our 35 yeas of experience to work to find the perfect solution for you.

Medical Architect

The technology explosion over the last 35 years has impacted many industries.  None as much as the medical profession.  No medical specialty has escaped the impact innovation has brought with new equipment, new procedures, and new possibilities.  There are innumerous factors that drive the delivery of health care, and it’s the delivery of healthcare that drives the design of the project.  At HDA Architects our designers understand the nuance of each specialty. 

Our approach to dental, or ophthalmology, differs significantly from the way we design pediatrics, family practice, urgent care or orthopedic surgery centers.  We can tailor our service to fit the needs of your project.  We often get involved in site selection, programming and financing for our clients.  Our staff also certifies surgery centers. If you are in the need of medical deign or a medical architect, put our experience to work for your next project.

Food Service, QSR, and Brewery Design

We love a challenge, and anything that involves commercial food service or kitchen design is always a fun project.  Whether you’re working on a brewery, distillery, quick serve restaurant, or commercial kitchen remodel, we have the experience, the team and equipment connections to make your project a success.

Food service projects always come with a tight time frame.  Downtime in the kitchen is dollars out the door.  We have a team of designers and engineers to get the project done right and done on time.  Without a doubt, for a brewery or commercial kitchen to be successful, you have to get the bones right.  What goes under the slab is absolutely critical.  We have the expertise and the team to get the perfect commercial kitchen design for your next project.

Multi Family Architect

I think we did our first apartment projects in the mid 1980’s.  We are still helping developers and investors provide solid, innovative, and long lasting multi-family housing even today.  Although the styles have changed and the projects have sometimes gotten a lot bigger, we are intrigued and drawn to helping families create a home in their apartments, townhouses and condominiums.  We still see much of this industry using wood frame construction, however more and more owners are using metal stud framing, and even steel frame. 

Depending on the size and volume of the building, and the site conditions we have the experience to provide the perfect solution for your multi family project.  If we are designing for in-town Gen-X, Y or millennial clientele, we see innovative unit plans, flexible amenities, easy access, with solid security measures.  In suburban areas where more space is available, wood frame walk-up style units are still the most economical and prevalent.  If you’ve got a multi family project on your horizon, put our experience to work for you.
