Bruce Herrington

AIA, LEED AP, President and Founding Principal

Bruce is the man behind the firm. He founded Herrington Architects in 1994 showcasing his architectural talent by serving Birmingham and the southeastern United States. What began as a one man shop focused on multifamily projects has morphed into a studio of 10 pursuing multifamily, commercial and mission critical work. After 25 years of business, Bruce seized the opportunity to formally expand the firm's leadership and ownership to its employees. Now with a broader range of experience and talent, the firm is stronger for it. More diverse. Passionate about problem solving. Dedicated to clients and to the craft.
