HDA Architects Merges with COLE Architects
Gilbert, Arizona, June 2022 — HDA Architects has finalized a merger with COLE Architects, a Northwest-based firm with offices in Boise, Idaho and Bend, Oregon. HDA Architects will retain their current personnel and office location, but will now operate under one ownership team.
HDA Architects and COLE Architects are similar in qualifications, market sectors, and design approach. This exciting development provides the COLE/HDA team and their clients greater support, expertise, and flexibility for future projects. Team members will work together between offices and support joint production of architectural design across many project types.
HDA Architects has provided architectural design services for over 32 years, with a portfolio of work that focuses on municipal, educational, and religious projects throughout Arizona. HDA has a proven track record of delivering exemplary services to a wide range of public and private market sectors.
COLE Architects has been in business for over 27 years. Established in Idaho in 1995, the award-winning firm is known for client-centric work, attention to detail, and a diverse portfolio. Their experience in an assortment of project types includes recreation, emergency response, education, commercial, government, religious, adaptive reuse, and mixed-use developments.
“This merging of abilities and interests is an exciting next step for our team throughout the region,” Matt Huffield, Managing Partner at COLE Architects, shared. “Our firm’s goal is that everyone in our team find satisfaction in their work and continued opportunity to stretch their abilities.”
With this merger, the firm expands its team to over 40 highly skilled professionals. With a diversity of talents, backgrounds, and expertise, their team includes architects licensed in various states, architectural and interior designers, and administrative staff.
Moving forward, Huffield envisions COLE Architects “maintaining our connections to local and regional influences and focusing on doing what’s right — whether that means being true to design and materials, creating a harmonious work environment for our employees, or facing important sustainability and environmental issues.”
