Since 1963, HHS has provided architecture, master planning, and interior design services, including building information modeling, to clients primarily in the higher education, K-12, and commercial markets.
In September 2022, Bernhard Capital Partners, a services- and infrastructure-focused private equity management firm, launched a dedicated AEC platform in connection with an investment in GHC. With the addition of HHS, GHC will add education and civic market expertise to its platform, while establishing a presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth region, which continues to benefit from consistent population growth and an increase in approved education-related spending.
"HHS's experience in every aspect of design — coupled with its relationship-centric service philosophy — has made the firm the partner of choice for customers in the Texas region for more than 60 years," said Jerry Hebert, CEO of GHC. "The HHS team shares our values and focus on delivering exceptional results for customers. As we continue to grow and expand our industry-leading platform in key markets, we are confident HHS will play an immediate and meaningful role in enhancing our expertise in the K-12, higher education, and civic segments."
"We are pleased to partner with an industry-leading firm like GHC and to have the ability to leverage the expertise and resources of Bernhard Capital's growing AEC platform to provide enhanced service for our clients," said Eric Hahnfeld, Principal at HHS. "With our shared commitment to investing in deep client relationships and providing outstanding architecture and design services, we are excited about this next chapter for HHS and our team."
