Hoffmann Architects



Our success
is built
on our staff.

What’s it like to work at Hoffmann Architects?

Our work is second to none because our people believe we’re the best at what we do.  Being part of a team that does something few other firms do and even fewer do well is remarkably fulfilling.

Our offices don’t look like typical architects’ studios.  That’s because they’re anything but typical.  No fussy models or hastily pinned drawings cover the walls and floor, and no team of bleary-eyed interns slavishly trails a lead designer, feverishly jotting notes.

What will you find in our offices?  Junior architects conferring with a company vice president about a tough remediation.  A business development manager and a designer discussing a new proposal over the Keurig machine.  An engineer and a bookkeeper chatting about their kids.

We don’t demand late-night charrettes to make deadlines.  Here, you’ll keep regular hours and be home in time to have dinner with your family, catch the game, or meet up with friends.

Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch?

At regular “Lunch-N-Learns,” you’ll have a bite while earning AIA continuing education credits at an in-office seminar.  Catch up on news and developments in the field by attending conferences, contributing to the Hoffmann Architects JOURNAL, or just reading postings to the company intranet.  And every Friday, break early and join coworkers for Happy Hour food and drink, on us.

For a firm with offices in three cities, we’re a tight group.  Golf outings, competition for the highly coveted office Bowling Trophy, baseball games, a summer family picnic, and a winter holiday party are some of the many chances to get to know the people who work with you, whether in another state or at the next desk.

You’re committed to sustainable design and protecting our natural resources.  Or to making a real contribution to the building profession.  Or simply to being a part of something larger than yourself.  At Hoffmann Architects, you can make that happen.



Diversity & Inclusion Committee

At Hoffmann Architects, we appreciate the importance of creating an environment in which all employees feel valued, heard, and empowered.

We recognize that the diversity of our employees’ experiences, perspectives, backgrounds, and beliefs enhances our firm’s ability to identify and meet our clients’ needs, collaborate with other professionals, and provide architectural and engineering services of the highest caliber.

Our Diversity & Inclusion Committee is composed of a cross-section of our workplace, from the president of the firm to junior technical staff. If you’d like, you can join as soon as your first day.

Incorporating diverse viewpoints across social, cultural, racial, ethnic, gender, and sexual identities is critical to building relationships with our diverse clients and colleagues. Inclusivity and equity encourage new voices and ideas to thrive, allowing our firm to innovate, evolve, and provide leadership that not only responds to the industry, but drives it forward.

The ambitious initiatives of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee were recognized with the inaugural J.E.D.I. Award from AIA Connecticut. Learn more about our work to expand diverse representation in the firm and the profession in our Diversity Statement.

Emerging Professionals Group

A community of young professionals in architecture and engineering, the Emerging Professionals Group fosters collaboration among the firm’s offices and provides professional development resources. Through Hoffmann University, a series of lunch-and-learn conversations with established design professionals in the firm, the group provides opportunities for learning, growth, and discussion on technical topics.

For those seeking licensure, the study sessions and support of the Emerging Professionals Group encourages participants to meet their goals.
