Solutions fueled by imagination soar far beyond those determined by science alone. When science and creativity come together, the most elegant answers are found. And the results endure.

Since 1930, van Zelm Heywood & Shadford has maintained a heritage of unparalleled dedication to quality, creativity and timeless design that is evident in every project we produce.

Our solution-oriented designs are responsive to the evolving building system infrastructure requirements for healthcare, laboratory, academic, athletic, college/university, libraries, office and institutional facilities.

Our reputation in the building industry is for the successful design of the complicated mechanical and electrical systems demanded by today's sophisticated buildings.

We are, after all, not so much in the business of securing projects as we are in the business of developing satisfied clients. With professional performance. With honesty. And with imagination. We believe it is this commitment which ensures that our firm, like our projects, will endure.
