History

Founded in 1901, SHP has evolved from a sole proprietorship to the diverse, multidisciplinary design practice we are today. This has resulted in a culture that marries the personalized engagement and attentiveness of a small firm with the deep experience and resources of a global agency.  From our two offices in Ohio and one in Kentucky, we execute projects and sustain relationships with clients throughout the United States.

SHP completed our first education project in 1922 and we continue to work with that client today.  But our work has evolved as education has, from forward-facing desks and solo teachers to vibrant, self-directed learning environments with teachers as guides and facilitators.  SHP has truly embraced 21st Century learning in all its forms.

Our evolution isn’t limited simply to design.  We have been responsible for innovative industry service offerings such as our community engagement program, our facilities management program, and our integrated design and construction services.

SHP’s storied legacy has played an important role in our firm’s future.  But time marches relentlessly on, and SHP has realized that to stay ahead we must adapt to market changes while constantly raising the bar.  Our commitment to our clients, projects and the future keeps us going strong.
