In 1964 two young architects named Don Jernigan and Bob Harrison formed a business partnership with Thad Hawkins, a civil/structural engineer. The founding partners began our inventive legacy with pioneering work in the design and delivery of Elderly Care Facilities across the Southeast. By 1980, their partnership expanded into a professional corporation with new Principals and a new name. JH&H Partnership became what is now known as JH&H Architects, Planners, Interiors, PA. Today, the three-man business venture has expanded into a 30-person, multi-disciplined firm, led by a president who started at JH&H as an intern in 1976. For 50 years, in over 1,000 projects, we have enriched our local and regional communities with original, integrated design services. We are eager to continue this merger of tradition and innovation.
