Steve Hoard

“I am part of SPACE because of the multidisciplinary nature of the office and staff, being a particular combination of design and construction professionals.  This fact resonated perfectly with me as a professional, my experience path, and my practice goals. 

I also really appreciate working in an environment in which both the fabrication/construction side and the design side of the practice respect and elevate each other’s craft in an additive way.  The two are better together!

My favorite and most exciting part of working at SPACE is the collaboration of ideas between a client’s vision and all of our staff to do our best work!”
