HCL’s architectural team focuses on the municipal, commercial, and residential markets, with an emphasis on sustainable and feasible design solutions.

HCL recently added architecture to its list of professional services with a team of licensed architects experienced in the following construction types: office buildings, tenant improvements, industrial/manufacturing facilities, retail, and residential. HCL’s architectural team focuses on municipal, commercial, industrial, and residential markets, with an emphasis on sustainable, efficient, and elegant design solutions.

Architecture to HCL is about relationships, open and effective communication, and responsiveness to our clients and the surrounding context and environment. These founding principles guide HCL to utilize a diverse selection of tools and technology to communicate design intent and collaborate with clients and other design disciplines from concept through construction. This is evident by employing hand sketching, working in cloud-supported building information modeling software, and applying standardized procedures for coordination throughout the duration of projects. The architectural team at HCL has experience with a variety of project delivery methods, including: construction manager/general contractor, construction manager-at-risk, design-build, and design-bid-build. As an integrated multi-disciplinary firm, HCL offers its clients a one-stop-shop for architectural and engineering services.

With architecture, civil engineering, structural engineering, land surveying, and subsurface utility engineering services offered in-house, HCL is the “nuts to bolts” provider of architectural and engineering services throughout the Denver Metro region. 

“Estelle and I want to thank you for putting this together so quickly – good to work with you. I really appreciate how thorough you have been.”
