HGA Moves to Expanded Offices in San Francisco


Torrance, CA – September 18, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — HGA Architects and Engineers (HGA) has relocated to expanded offices in San Francisco to accommodate its growing practice serving healthcare, higher education and cultural clients. HGA’s San Francisco office has grown by nearly 25 percent in the past two years, adding shared expertise to the 120-person California practice, which includes the Sacramento and Los Angeles offices.

“HGA continues to experience tremendous growth in northern California,” said Fredrick Sherman, FAIA, vice president and director of HGA’s San Francisco office. “Our professional staff includes expertise in planning, design, project management, integrated project delivery and Lean design principles. The expanded office enables us to align our expertise to efficiently meet new opportunities for our clients.”

The new office is located in an eight-story, brick-and-masonry commercial building at 170 Maiden Lane at Union Square. The 7,400-square-foot, full-floor office on the fifth floor features an open studio environment with flexible work stations, two conference rooms, high ceilings and operable windows that offer abundant daylight and natural ventilation. Finishes and detailing feature a design-forward image, with LEED® Certification anticipated.

The San Francisco office was established in 2000 to pursue cultural and higher education work, and in 2007 the firm acquired Thistlethwaite Architectural Group (TAG) to strengthen its healthcare portfolio in northern California.

HGA’s recent northern California projects include Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Addition at Stanford under construction in Palo Alto, Calif.; a new Medical Office Building for Kaiser Permanente in San Ramon, Calif.; the Student Services Center at Monterey Peninsula College; and the Performing Arts Center at Napa Valley College.
