Our Academic and Institutional Architecture Practice

Hecht and Associates specializes in complex small to mid-scale renovations and additions for colleges and universities. Since 1998 we have designed a wide range of projects, including research laboratories and support facilities, dormitory entrances and lobbies, housemaster residences, classrooms, lecture halls, and accessibility improvements. We facilitate a collaborative design process between owners, users, contractors, and designers. 

We manage highly committed project teams of design engineers and other consultants and have established successful working relationships with construction managers and builders.
