Marietta, Georgia — In a recent issue of the Atlanta Business Chronicle, CDH Partners was named one of the top architectural firms in Georgia. It was ranked number nine in a list of 25 top firms in the state. William Chegwidden president and one of the founding principals said, “This is a tremendous achievement for our firm. It demonstrates the dedication our employees have to CDH and to each project we undertake.”
Last year, CDH was listed 15 out of 25. This year’s move up in this year’s rankings is a credit to the quality of work and the dedication CDH has to its clients and the metro Atlanta community.
CDH was founded in 1977 and incorporated in January 1993 as CDH Partners, Inc. The firm was named after its three founding partners, Bill Chegwidden, Don Dorsey, and Chuck Holmes. Over the years, it has repeatedly been recognized as one of the top ten largest and most progressive architectural firms in Atlanta and in the southeast.
It offers in-house interior design and professional engineering services to compliment the base architectural services. Engineering disciplines include civil, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural. Areas of specialty include medical, assisted living, educational, religious, and engineering.
CDH employs over 70 people and included in that number are 10 architects, 9 engineers, 5 Interior Designers, and a support staff of 10. Managing principals include: William Chegwidden, David Strickland, Melissa Cantrell, and Paul Stegenga.
More than 75,000 patients receive care each day in a CDH designed facility. And each Sunday over 500,000 people across the country worship in churches planned and designed by CDH. Along with this number are the thousands that study and work in educational environments designed and built by CDH architects and engineers.
Chegwidden explains, “Each project entrusted to CDH provides an opportunity for us to become personally involved in the lives, visions, and futures of others. It is our opportunity to serve others for a greater purpose.
“This perspective not only drives the way we do our day-to-day work, it is the reason why we do what we do. Most importantly, we share the enthusiasm and concern a client has whether it involves healthcare, education, religious, or another area. I believe the one thing that sets us a part as a firm is our commitment to listen, to communicate and to document the needs and desires of our clients.”
Many of the services CDH offers as “standard and in-house” are treated and billed as extras by other firms. The company’s basic professional service plan includes architectural planning, engineering, interior design and more depending upon what fits your present need.
