Simply Helping People.

For more than 120 years, we have proudly designed engaging learning environments, inspiring workplaces and enriching community spaces. Every single one of those years has been spent looking forward, anticipating and shaping the future of architecture, design and engineering, and creating spaces that enable better human experiences. After all, it’s these experiences that allow people to flourish; that is, to realize their fullest, truest selves.

For us, “Simply Helping People” isn’t just a tagline. It’s an attitude, a frame of mind, a way of working and living that brings out the best in all of us.

Design Charrette

Our monthly design charrettes are a great opportunity to stretch our favorite muscle—our minds. We recently applied the design horsepower of the entire firm toward developing concepts for a specialized facade, and we can’t wait to see how they integrate into future projects!

Celebrating 120 Years

We gathered with friends and family to celebrate our firm’s 120th anniversary. The event featured a timeline of our history, a balloon marquee, trivia, live music, food, cake, face painting, a piñata, games and more! Our fantastic co-workers truly make SHP a workplace like no other.
