The blueprint for the built environment

At Harwood, we take the time to truly understand what drives your organization. Think of us as an extension of your team, committed to your long-term success. We carefully consider design choices and their impacts not just today, but as your organization grows in the future.

You can count on open communication, regular project updates, and a highly responsive team when working with us. It’s all about achieving the successful outcome you envision.

Though “realistic and practical design” may not sound exciting, we know that efficient, well-integrated building systems are essential to your project’s success. The more streamlined these systems are, the better the outcome will be.

Our team expertly collaborates with our clients to create designs that exceed basic requirements and elevate our partners’ work. We’re known for our well-coordinated efforts, ensuring all systems work in harmony. To guarantee accuracy and efficiency, we utilize the latest BIM (Building Information Modeling) software for seamless coordination across disciplines.


Our work spans across markets, project scopes and scales, from massive multi-million-dollar waterparks to simple sinks in elementary school bathrooms. No matter the project size, we provide personalized attention to cater to your specific needs.

Our flexible approach also accommodates various project delivery methods. Whether we’re working on a traditional architecturally run project, doing a direct system design with a building owner, or partnering with a contractor for a design assist, we have you covered.

Our Commitment to DEI and Corporate Social Responsibility

We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all. The collective sum of our individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, curiosity, and talents that employees bring to their work represents not only a large part of our culture, but our reputation and achievement as a best place to work. As we recruit and develop our employees, we welcome all the unique contributions that one can bring to our team.

We’re proud of our track record of engagement, outreach, and successful corporate social responsibility initiatives. Our actions speak louder than words, and we’re always striving to make a positive impact in the world around us.

One way we do this is by volunteering our time and resources. Giving back is an integral part of who we are, and we actively support the communities where we live and work.

We recognize that there is more work to be done. That’s why our commitment to progress remains steadfast. We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our efforts and make an even greater impact.


At Harwood, we’re more than just colleagues, we’re a family. We don’t operate with a rigid hierarchy or layers of management. We believe in empowering our talented team members to make the best decisions for their clients, their coworkers and the firm.

But that doesn’t mean we’re all work and no play. While we’re serious about delivering creative, innovative engineering solutions, we’re also serious about having some fun along the way. It’s one of our firm values and we don’t take it lightly.
