Hagney Architects, LLC provides an experienced staff to guide clients through a design and construction program. Successful building projects require balancing the program needs and the budget. We provide the guidance and advice to help the client make the right planning and design decisions that are required for a successful project. Careful programming, creative design, accurate cost budgeting and thorough construction administration have established a very positive reputation for Hagney Architects throughout the stateline area. Our practice has remained diversified and varied over the years, providing superior architectural services to our healthcare, commercial, industrial, institutional, public and residential clients. We are very proud of our current and previously completed projects. FIRM DESIGN PHILOSOPHY Hagney Architects’ design approach brings together a concern for program requirements and plan efficiency with an appreciation for the quality of public and private spaces. Our buildings are known for their responsiveness to program, appropriateness of solution, and compatibility with contextual conditions. We recognize good design comes from addressing a combination of unique program needs and specific physical requirements found with each new project and each new site. For this reason we do not approach design with a preconceived architectural style. Rather, we look to the surrounding community and neighborhood for inspiration, because we recognize these are important elements in design. In managing and coordinating the project team, we stress clear, consistent and timely communication within the team. Communication is the tool that facilitates timely and reliable decision-making and optimizes coordination of the design and construction work. In construction economics where “time is money”, coordination within the design and construction teams is crucial to maintaining and managing a project construction budget. Our list of projects completed for repeat clients continues to grow due to our commitment to principal involvement in all of our work. The people that work with you on the onset of your project stay with you until your building is occupied. We develop close relationships and friendships with our valued clients. It’s the way that we choose to work.
