Giving Back

Our community is important to us.
We are grateful for the opportunity to make a difference.

We regularly donate our time and talents to community projects. We have worked with the Dorchester County Habitat for Humanity, Trident Habitat for Humanity, and LowCountry Orphan Relief. If you have a special project that needs pro bono architectural design services please contact our office at 843-885-9400 so we can consider your worthy project.
