Hoffmann Architects Wins 2022 AIA New England Emerging Professional Friendly Firm Award

Hoffmann Architects, an architecture and engineering firm specializing in the rehabilitation of building exteriors, was recognized for commitment to the advancement of emerging professionals with the Emerging Professional Friendly Firm Award from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) New England Components.

Comprised of AIA chapters from Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont, the New England AIA Components recognize firms that actively foster the professional development and personal growth of emerging professionals through policies, initiatives, and opportunities. Hoffmann Architects was selected as a recipient of the 2022 AIA New England Emerging Professional Friendly Firm designation for valuing emerging professionals, developing policies from an emerging professional lens, and recognizing the critical role of emerging professionals to sustaining the growth of the practice.

The AIA defines “Emerging Professional” as those “who have completed their academic studies up to the point of licensure or up to 10 years after completion of their academic studies.” (AIA Center for Emerging Professionals)

On conferring the award, Gina Calabro, Hon. AIA CT, Executive Director and CEO of AIA Connecticut, remarked: “Hoffmann Architects has been chosen to receive this prestigious designation as the firm has displayed an outstanding commitment to the development of their Emerging Professional staff.”

Hoffmann Architects will be honored at the 2022 New England Architecture Awards ceremony on Saturday, October 1, 2022, hosted by AIA Rhode Island at South Street Landing in Providence, RI.
