Harriman pursues creative partnerships to design relevant and innovative solutions to human needs. Our work is based on the belief that design is a collaborative human endeavor centered on knowledge, ingenuity, and beauty. Through practicing the art of architecture and the science of engineering, we create environments that honor context, embrace wisdom, and enhance well-being.
Harriman is also an innovative multi-disciplinary planning and design firm headquartered in Auburn, Maine. With a legacy dating back to the firm’s founding in 1870, nearly 150 years ago, Harriman has deep roots in many of Maine’s bucolic cities and towns. Applying a holistic approach, our diverse practice blends planning, urban design, landscape architecture, architecture and engineering to provide our clients with solutions that translate their distinct strategic goals and respond to complex economic, regulatory, and community considerations.
A philosophy of “putting places together” underpins our practice, harnessing the power of our team’s diverse skill sets to solve the challenges facing today’s communities. The integrated nature of our practice means we apply a holistic approach that is based on collaborative teamwork and a commitment to service — an approach verified by the number of repeat clients, and an on-time, on-budget track record. Our clients are able to realize the potential of their buildings, towns, cities, developments, parks and open spaces because they are better planned, better designed, and better engineered.
