For more than 110 years we have designed spaces that are in tune with the needs of our clients, the environment and the people who use them.

Founded in 1901, SHP Leading Design is nationally recognized as a leader in planning, designing and managing facilities for clients in the K-12, higher education, vocational/technical and community college industries. From our offices in Cincinnati and Columbus, SHP has completed nearly $3B in architectural design services during the past 10 years alone. We are a successful, ground-breaking firm and recognized throughout the industry for our holistic design, collaborative partnerships, sustainable practices, innovative technology and stake-holder processes.

It is our mission to joyfully enrich the lives of people through service and design. Let us prove it to you. 


I have found the architects, engineers, and managers to be very knowledgeable, flexible and helpful in the planning process. Options are explored, expenses are detailed and well researched recommendations are made.
