Testimonials

SHP Leading Design has been fantastic to work with on this major project for our district.  From the very first meeting through the design phase and during construction, they have been a great partner.  All of their personnel have been very helpful and they are outstanding at communication with me and my staff.

David A. Gray, Superintendent of SchoolsFranklin-Monroe Local School District

…I have found the individuals associated with SHP to be very professional, easy to work with, and they have the district’s best interest in mind, as they design a school building that is energy efficient and cutting-edge, and will serve the district for many decades.

Nick Verhoff, SuperintendentBeavercreek City Schools

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.

Dan Dumas, Senior VP of Institutional AdministrationThe Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Their service has been excellent, providing quick response and superb follow-thru on all our projects, as well as assistance beyond their scope of work.

SHP’s design services are matched by their ability to understand the needs of the owner and construction team delivering the work.

SHP took an existing facility on our Fayette campus and transformed it into a building that makes a statement and gives our campus the image we were seeking. In addition to being beautiful, the design accomplished everything we needed.

One of the most important decisions a district is selecting an architectural firm for the project. Steed Hammond Paul was our architect and we count their selection as one of the best decisions that we made in regards to the project.
