The Durham office features a world-class team of client-focused professionals who are intricately tied to the fabric and culture of their region while working on projects locally, nationally and internationally. Long-term client relationships and repeat assignments have made the office a major force in the region for the design and delivery of science + technology, healthcare, higher education, corporate + commercial + civic and interiors projects.

Leadership in sustainable, high-performance, environmentally-conscious design is a cornerstone of our practice and informs every project we do: It's how we practice and how we live. We are committed to creating work that will sustain healthy lives and benefit our clients, our company, our community and our world.
