Featured Project

The new Peters Township High School will be open to students on January 19th for the first day of classes in the new, state-of-the-art building. Watch this video to see a preview of what the students will see as they enter the school for the first time.

The new 298,000 SF, three-story high school consists of three wings (Academic, Fine Arts, and Physical Education) and includes fifty general instruction classrooms surrounding a two-story “Learning Commons” with an adjacent learning stair, 1,200-seat performance auditorium, food court style cafeteria with an outdoor dining patio, 2,000-seat multi-sport gymnasium, 300-seat auxiliary gymnasium, and an 8-lane natatorium.  The school’s design features 21st century learning concepts including interactive technology and spaces that promote collaboration with flexible furniture arrangements and a number of security features.

About Us & Our Culture

Part of our passion for building strong communities is our dedication to giving back to the local community. Each year, HDG supports local nonprofits through community sponsorships, participation in community service projects, and matching employee donations to local non-profits. Whether it’s going the extra mile for a client or hosting a toy drive, the firm’s work reflects a sense of greater purpose to work together for the benefit of the community.

As part of this mission, each year we take the opportunity to showcase our profession and skills through helping to keep important local landmarks and architectural icons maintained. Most recently, we hosted our company-wide Adopt-a-Landmark program at the Emmanuel Episcopal Church, a National Historic Landmark located on Pittsburgh’s North Side. Throughout the day, our entire company assisted with work both inside and outside of the church, including a variety of landscaping and cleaning tasks. The firm’s Adopt-a-Landmark program is focused on the important role that the architectural profession can play in honoring local historic landmarks to ensure their upkeep and maintenance so everyone can continue to enjoy the rich local history and culture they provide!

3D Animated Architectural Renderings

Recently, HDG provided architectural services for the design of a proposed expansion to St. Clair Country Club. The proposed expansion includes a 5,000 sq. ft. building addition with restaurant, kitchen, restrooms, indoor/outdoor bar, splash park, lawn extension, outdoor seating, and pergola. HDG also completed a master plan to develop the site with paddle courts, retaining walls, parking, and sidewalks. At the end of conceptual design, HDG created a 3D animated architectural rendering to assist with fundraising for the project.

This video is an example of HDG’s architectural rendering capabilities, and is a  service we provide to more fully visualize a project’s conceptual design. An animated fly-through video rendering of this kind can be useful in assisting clients with building consensus for a project and with fundraising prior to the completion of final design.
