For more than a century we have designed spaces that are in tune with the needs of the client, the environment and the people who use them.

Founded in 1901, SHP Leading Design is nationally recognized as a leader in facility planning, design and management. From our offices in both Cincinnati and Columbus, SHP has completed nearly $3B of facility construction during the past 10 years alone. We are a successful, ground-breaking firm and recognized throughout the industry for our innovative technology, collaborative design, sustainable practices and stakeholder-driven processes.

It is our mission at SHP to joyfully enrich the lives of people through service and design.


SHP was tasked with taking a building from concept to completion in just twelve months. Along the way it was necessary to match 80 year old brick and negotiate HVAC changes to name a few of the challenges faced. In the end Southern Seminary asked for a “stunning” building to welcome our guests to campus and SHP more than delivered.
