COLE Architects has finalized a merger with Gilbert-based HDA Architects expanding the firm’s presence in the region to three western states: Oregon, Idaho and Arizona. Each office location will retain their current location and personnel but will now operate under one ownership team.

COLE Architects and HDA Architects are similar in qualifications, market sectors and design approach. This exciting development provides the COLE/HDA team and their clients greater support, expertise and flexibility for future projects.

HDA Architects has provided architectural design services in Arizona for over 32 years. The firm’s vision at its founding in 1989 was to assemble a team of architectural specialists versed in a wide array of building types. Over the years this vision has created one of the most highly regarded architectural firms in Arizona. HDA’s portfolio is focused on municipal, educational and religious projects throughout Arizona. HDA has a proven track record of delivering exemplary services to many public and private market sectors.

“This merging of abilities and interests is an exciting next step for our team throughout the region,” Matt Huffield, managing partner at COLE Architects, shared. “Our firm’s goal is that everyone in our team find satisfaction in their work and continued opportunity to stretch their abilities.”

COLE Architects has now expanded its team to over 40 highly skilled professionals. With a diversity of talents, backgrounds and expertise, their team includes architects licensed in various states, architectural and interior designers and administrative staff. Team members will work together between offices and support joint production of architectural design across many project types.

Moving forward, Huffield envisions COLE Architects “maintaining our connections to local and regional influences and focusing on doing what’s right — whether that means being true to design and materials, creating a harmonious work environment for our employees, or facing important sustainability and environmental issues.”
