We are TreanorHL

2016-08-08 Posted By: Patty Weaver

Effective August 8, 2016, we are excited to announce our company name: TreanorHL.

“We considered several options during the renaming process—options ranging from a brand new name to keeping one of our current names—in the end we wanted to respect the nature of who we are,” said Dan Rowe, TreanorHL president and chief executive officer. “Our new name respects the long histories of both Treanor Architects and H+L Architecture while reflecting the aspirations of the new firm.”

The merger was announced in January 2016. Since then, leadership has united the firm by incorporating best practices and shaping focused studios based on the areas of expertise.

“A merger is announced in a singular moment, but the act of merging is an ongoing effort,” said Scott Kuehn, TreanorHL chief operating officer. “We have diligently combined our firms, working to maintain the best practices in project management and design. Because of our shared values and client-centered practice the process has gone well and our studios are a natural evolution of our practice.”

TreanorHL will continue to focus on areas of expertise and thought leadership, allowing us to provide the best solutions for each of our client’s specific needs. We have specialized Studios in design for advanced industries, education, healthcare, housing/mixed-use, justice, preservation, science and technology, and student life.

“While our name has evolved, our commitment to our clients, our communities, and our employees remains the same,” said Kuehn. “This strategic growth allows us to focus on our passion, such as healthcare, education, and advanced industries, while offering new services to the Denver and Colorado Springs communities.”
