Philosophy


We believe that successful architecture comes from the understanding of client values, an imaginative approach to problem solving, and the execution of creative, functional solutions.

We strive to deliver these to every client on every project.

Approach


HBT Architects was founded as Harrison Bridges & Associates in late 2000 and was formed with relationships that extend back many years. Our firm was designed to provide a creative working environment for talented people. Partners Trevor Harrison and Jim Tripp remain personally involved in all aspects of our projects. Our environment of learning and sharing reflects in our design approach and the satisfaction of our clients.

Our firm is dedicated to a high level of professionalism. Over half of our staff members are licensed architects with many years of experience and all our professional staff are required to be LEED Accredited Professionals. This high standard is reflected in both employee and client satisfaction.

Careers


We are always looking for creative people who want to share their talents while learning from others. If you would like to apply for a position, please forward a well designed resume to tharrison@hbtarchitects.com.
