BHDP Architecture began as an industrial design firm in 1937, with Cincinnati Milacron as our first client. While we have diversified into a number of other markets since then, we are incredibly proud of our industrial design heritage and continue to strive to utilize our unique design process and technologies on manufacturing facilities, warehouses, and distribution centers around the world, having completed projects in over 25 countries on 6 continents.

BHDP integrates strategic planning methodologies with our unique skills and expertise in industrial manufacturing and material distribution design to deliver best-in-class operations while achieving breakthrough productivity, cost, and speed to market goals for our clients.

With effective client engagement throughout the project we establish a shared understanding of key business drivers, operational requirements, and organizational culture objectives. Our integrated design process ensures the interaction of people; operational work processes and each functional space are harmonized to create innovative design solutions that bring our client’s goals to life.

"BHDP's work on a new master plan for the Queensgate South region integrated the details of our existing environment with new ideas that will foster industry growth."
