What our clients say...
“H&A has demonstrated that they possess excellent technical expertise in all design disciplines. This is evident by the high quality of their design packages and their excellent adherence to the contract documents. They are an excellent provider of services in accordance with the terms of the contract."
- Mr. William Robson, P.E., BRAC Program Engineer // U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District
"I am writing in support of H&A for their outstanding concept and design of the world-class Sandler Center for the Performing Arts in Virginia Beach. The Sandler Center is the new gem in the Hampton Roads arts scene. The theater has world-class acoustics, and wonderful planning went into the design of the state and back stage areas. Also, the sound curtain in the theater gives you the ability to adjust acoustics for spoken word, chamber music, large orchestras or amplified music. It has become an integral part of the arts culture in our community."
- Robert Cross // Sandler Center Executive & Artistic Director
“H&A has always provided all of the relevant resources and services required by each of the task orders contracted to them. They have consistently met contract requirements, have provided quality design, and have assigned the appropriate technical expertise to each task order. All of the senior staff assigned to task orders brought the levels of experience required by each task order. Replacement staff, if needed, was selected based on their ability to meet all of the contract requirements of task orders."
- Timothy Smith, AIA // HBA Architecture
