Enhancing The Mission
We are experts at balancing the constraints of space and budget to ultimately deliver an end product which will enhance your institutions overall mission.
The process of learning issues, working through design alternatives, and reaching consensus within myriad institutional groups is core element of our success. End users, facilities personnel, design engineers, and senior management all contribute to this interactive process.
All stakeholders have a contribution to make in a collaborative design process. Tuning in to each of the various voices and learning their unique vision for the project helps us develop balanced design solutions. Understanding the essential mission guides and directs this process.
We embrace the mission of the institution and the project goals as our own. We bring our design talents and creative solutions to the table within this framework. Our success comes from our ability to balance the desires of all the stakeholders within that overall mission.

We recently completed a complex, fast-paced institutional renovation project with Harrison Mulhern Architects. Throughout the process Chris and his team proved to be knowledgeable, responsive, and easy to work with. They understood intuitively when to demand strict adherence to the design and when deviation from the proposed plan was necessary accommodate existing conditions. We look forward to continuing our relationship with HMA, as their thoughtful designs and collaborative approach allow us to build to our full potential and ensure that our clients will be satisfied at project end.
We Do It All
Who We Work With
From individual professors to department heads to renovation committees, we work to understand and quantify the needs of the end users of our projects. Careful listening, collaborative research, group design exercises and solid documentation provide a strong base for our design process. Feedback at each stage of the project helps keep us in tune with the big picture goals.
The detailed knowledge of an institution’s facilities resides with the facilities team. By tapping into that knowledge base, Harrison Mulhern Architects is able to build on what has been done well in the past and avoid prior pitfalls. An on-going dialog during pre-design, design and construction phases yields a close alignment of the end product with the institution’s facility goals and design standards.
Charged with safeguarding the institution’s mission and managing the project budget, senior management plays a vital role in the design process. Their input, along with that of the facilities team, is crucial from the early conceptual planning through the ribbon cutting ceremony.
