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.  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

The new, state-of-the-art Peters Township High School opened to students in January 2021. Watch this 3D video rendering to see what the students see as they enter the school each day!

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/or with fundraising prior to the completion of final design.
