Straughan Featured In Gwinnett’s Executive Magazine

IMG_5323Gwinnett County, Georgia – Doug Straughan, Hussey Gay Bell’s Principal-In-Charge in north Georgia, was recently featured in Gwinnett County’s exclusive magazine, The Executive.  The article features three insights core to Hussey Gay Bell’s nearly 60-year tradition:

KNOW THE CLIENT:  In the design and construction industry, relationships matter.  A good designer is a good listener and personalization is at the core of what we do. We want to understand HOW they do business before we propose design solutions for our clients.  From our origins as a one-phone office back in 1958 to an ENR Top 500 Design Firm with over 110 professionals throughout Georgia and South Carolina, we wouldn’t be here today without those relationships.

KNOW THE COMMUNITY.  In addition to knowing our clients, Hussey Gay Bell is passionate about being involved in the communities they operate in. From Hall County Schools’ STEM book fair to Gwinnett County’s American Values Dinner – we believe in giving back.  Hussey Gay Bell’s employees are involved in over 100 community-centered organizations ranging from Urban Hope, United Way, Kiwanis Club and Second Harvest to Engineers Without Borders. Each year our firm commits thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours of volunteer support to the communities in which we live, work and play.

DELIVER INNOVATIVE DESIGN.  We are constantly thinking about what keeps our clients up a night and how we can better their bottom line or enhance their mission through innovative design. Our energetic and forward-thinking team blends the wisdom of experience with young creative minds which allows us to deliver solutions that solve real problems for our clients.  A prime example is the Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science and Technology which blended two out-of-date old schools into a state-of-the-art STEM high school that is recognized as one of the best schools in America.

We are continuing to grow our team here in Gwinnett County with the addition of talented architects and engineers. Whether it’s clean wastewater treatment, better transportation, improved public safety or education, we are here for our clients.
