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, Columbus and Northern Kentucky, 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. 


…a successful partnership is not just about business and dollars. It is about the willingness of a company/ organization to understand the needs of our district and work collaboratively with us to develop a plan to help us address those needs. The associates and team that you put together to work on our facilities planning project should be applauded.
