HBC is committed to helping our clients create unique and memorable places for people to live, work and interact. We contribute to the development process by offering creativity, knowledge, and experience.
HBC is practicing environmentally responsible design and has been engaged in this approach long before LID, LEED or Green building were recognized solutions. Our integrated approach to planning and design create places of sentiment, social, economic, and cultural values. Our Green and LEED driven solutions display our belief of being good stewards of our environment and of one another. We believe both the environment and people are gifts from God to be valued and cherished. We design and achieve creative solutions that leave lasting impressions with our clients and with the communities in which we work and live. By creating an environment, we create an experience. By shaping landscapes, we shape lives.
HBC has been a forerunner in the field of Landscape Architecture and Land Planning since 1975 when Henry and Heather Burkert began their company in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan. Their company grew successfully and in 1979 they relocated to Wilmington, NC where they became leaders in the profession. HBC practices in North Carolina and South Carolina.
HBC delivers extraordinary results by using our experience to do the right thing the first time and approaching every assignment with our client’s best interest in mind. We plan carefully, communicate effectively and improve continuously by learning from every project.
Every HBC team member is a careful steward of all resources, time, talent and tools. Our profitability ensures our continuing success and allows us to reward our people generously. Ultimately, our clients benefit from our firm’s fiscal responsibility.
