We believe it is our mission to deliver a better environment to each person who interacts with our designs. For the occupants, this approach is manifested in the quality and quantity of daylighting, acoustics, wayfinding and overall aesthetics. For the client, this approach is justified through user efficiency and reduction of construction, maintenance and energy costs.

In order to reach all of these goals, our team moderates a process of communication including owners, administrators and users. This process has worked for us because we establish a teamwork atmosphere for every building project. This expands to the building contractors and is based on the belief that, in a successful project, everyone benefits and everyone has an important role in achieving our common goal.

Planning and programming a project involves more than implementing the spatial needs of the client and designing accordingly. Our planning and programming methods are collaborative, inclusive, and well balanced.

Interior Design

Our firm has an established Interior Design department with extensive experience with numerous projects including medical, corporate, higher education, hospitality, and retail. All of our interior designers are well versed in life safety requirements for systems furniture selection/coordination, material selection appropriateness, green design and cost analysis.

Historic Renovation

We believe in preserving buildings that have survived generations through adaptive reuse and restoration and renovation to bring it back to its original glory.

MHAworks is, quite simply, the best healthcare architecture firm I have worked with in my 35+ year career. Technically, they are superb. They pay careful attention to the details and the needs of the client and deliver a product that is not only cost effective, but works well for the providers, the staff and the patients.
