About CDH

Improving Lives Through Design

In 1977, our founders made a commitment to design spaces dedicated to improving the lives of those in our local communities. Since then, we have designed numerous schools and universities, health parks and hospitals, all types of worship facilities and many other spaces, never forgetting we serve those who see to the well-being and futures of real people. And that’s important to us.

When we design, we envision our friends, family and ourselves experiencing and utilizing the space. We want to not only design for function, but to trigger emotions, like a sense of calm in a hospital where one may face overwhelming odds; to foster a closer connection with God and faith in one’s church; to cultivate potential and the desire to learn in students of all ages.

Serving Those Who Serve Others

At CDH Partners, we’re known for our integrity, authenticity and reputation for outstanding work. And, while we’ve won a few awards, things like growing our global portfolio are not what motivate us. We are focused on serving those that serve others, right here in our own backyard. We are passionate about what we do because we care about the community around us, the true impact we have on those that use the spaces we design and the legacy we leave behind for the next generation.

OUR VALUES:

Beyond Design

At CDH Partners, we know each of our client’s goals and desires are completely unique. That’s why we tailor our approach—whether it’s architecture and interior design or master planning—to each client and their individual situation. Because we are natural problem solvers, sometimes our suggestions may surprise you. For example, we may recommend the revitalization of an existing space as opposed to building a new one, in order to save costs while planning for growth.

Our Approach

With the kick-off of every project, our team of experienced staff meets with the owner, program management team and user groups to establish project goals and expectations. We work collaboratively with you and your team, gleaning valuable feedback on the overall design approach and using that as the foundation of our design. This process has proved successful year after year, enabling us to create buildings that significantly and positively enhance the lives of those who use them.
