About Us


About Us

We're More than Architects.  

Building projects can be complex. Communication is critical during the design stage and in construction. We have staff in the office, on the road, and at your project site, wherever the need is to jump on getting a project done. Principals and Project Managers are involved start to finish; Staff Architects are committed to finding the best solutions; Field Representatives are out and about observing work and communicating with contractors on a daily basis; and our administrative staff is here ready to answer your call and ensure the flow of contracts, questions, and other daily tasks are addressed without delay.

Our dedicated professionals work in a collaborative environment. Each individual brings knowledge, skill and imagination to the project - from sketches that conceptualize, 3D and BIM modeling to tests ideas and Contract Documents that accurately convey design intent.  Each aspect of our services ensures that our clients are provided with thoughtfully designed and well-built projects, completed on-time and on-budget. 

Our mission is the same today as it was when the Firm was founded in 1935. Our mission is to be a trusted adviser; to bring practical, cost-conscious design to our clients and in doing so, never lose sight of our commitment to client service and bringing the best ideas to the table.

SUSTAINABILITY / LEED

Healy | Bender prides itself as a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the non-profit organization responsible for developing and maintaining LEED standards. We have on-staff LEED accredited design professionals experienced in the requirements for LEED project certification. Our professionals share the desire to design and create projects that not only reduce the initial impact on the environment, but also to reduce long-term energy use and improve occupant well-being.

TECHNOLOGY MAKE US GREENER TOO!

Since 2010, our transition to electronic construction submittals via the web has saved over 30 trees.  It's also saved owners and contractors over $100,000 by eliminating more than 14,000 shipping days waiting for mailed documents to arrive.
