Company Profile

In 1976, Ken Hankins, Ed Miller and Jim Harper had a vision to form a service company that held client partnership and ownership commitment as key values to its operation – and with that, HMH was established. Today, with the evolution of ownership, staff, and services, HMH continues to embrace these same values as key components of success. HMH provides a collaborative and comprehensive approach to the design process. Whether we are providing multi-faceted services or specific discipline support for a project, our team approach adds value. With over forty-three years of private and public project experience in the Bay Area and California, HMH’s contributions have resulted in project success. With a staff of more than 80 professionals, we have the ability to provide support on projects of any size. Our services include:

  • Land Use Entitlements
  • Land Planning
  • Civil Engineering
  • Public Works
  • Landscape Architecture
  • Land Surveying
  • Stormwater Compliance

Our working knowledge of local policies and the political landscape enable us to provide unmatched guidance for our private clients, enabling successful navigation through the project entitlement and approval process. We have extensive design experience in new development and urban infill redevelopment and can tailor an approach to meet the needs of the client. Our comprehensive approach provides project envisioning with technical compatibility to create innovative and cost effective solutions.
