Hafer Announces Strategic Expansion

CARBONDALE, IL — Hafer announces a strategic expansion into two new markets with the acquisition of hmb ARCHITECTS LLC in Carbondale, Illinois, and the opening of a new branch in Columbus, Ohio. hmb ARCHITECTS LLC is an architecture and interior design firm with a suite of clients spanning the United States and presence in the workplace, civic, education, and retail markets.

“We are pleased to forge this partnership with the hmb ARCHITECTS and to welcome them to the Hafer family,” said Hafer President Jeff Justice. "Their proven commitment to service and community aligns beautifully with our company culture."

The new office will continue to do business as hmb ARCHITECTS LLC as a subsidiary of Hafer, retaining their existing premises and employees.

Simultaneously, Hafer launched a new office in Columbus, Ohio, helmed by Interior Designer Jason Southwell. Southwell has over a decade of service at Hafer.

“I’m thrilled to become part of the Columbus community and to help weave Hafer into the fabric of the city, and I’m looking forward to meeting new clients in the region,” Southwell said. “I know that our company philosophy will resonate with Ohioans seeking architectural, engineering, and design services that put people first.”
