CGHJ Architects started in 1975 when Gerry Curts formed an architectural firm with three partners which was called The Design Advocates. In 1992, Gerry invited Stephanie Gaines and Bob Hall to be his new partners, followed by Chuck a few years later and Curts Gaines Hall Jones Architects (CGHJ) was born. During their many years in business, talented architects, designers, draftsmen, administrators and technicians have passed through the firm. Many built their entire careers with CGHJ and others have been inspired to launch their own firms. One of those was Rob Glisson, who along with partner John Saldana, formed ROJO Architecture in 1998, another highly accomplished firm in Tampa. These two firms thrived in Tampa and built substantial bases of repeat clients.

Recently, the two firms merged to form a new company, GROH Architecture to strengthen both businesses and prepare for future growth. With the rebranding on November 1, 2022, Claudia Bernal of CGHJ Architects and Swapnali Salunke from ROJO Architecture were invited to become new principals of GROH Architecture.

“To be passionate about our client's”

Our job has many levels of service. We are here to serve our clients in solving functional, aesthetic, and economic issues. We strive to achieve all of these requirements while remembering that the spaces we create are going to be used by people trying to live, work and receive services. It is important to us that our clients’ clients are the people that are going to be using our spaces on a day to day basis. Employees are more efficient in well designed spaces; more efficiency creates more profit. Residents are happier in well designed living facilities; happy residents creates more sales. Good design works for everyone.

“We specialize in design with high levels of expections. ”

Our team is well equipped to meet your demands. You should get the results that you desire, after all you are spending a pretty penny on it! Through our experience over the years we have delivered medical facilities that require technical level of detail to make sure that all systems work efficiently and effectively, hospitality projects that require new and innovative spaces to draw their clients to their facilities, luxury residential projects that require attention to detail and quality of construction so that they spend more time enjoying their homes than fixing them. Our mission is to match your expectations to your budget and provide the highest level of service possible.

1.

Consultation and initial meeting

We meet with you to discuss your needs, budget, and timelines. If required we do a site visit to ‘see the lay of the land’. We discuss your needs, wants and dreams and provide you with a basic budget.

2.

Concept design

After gathering the necessary information, we create a concept design that outlines the overall vision for the project. This includes sketches, 3D models, and/or computer-generated renderings.

3.

Construction Documentation

Once you approve of the concept design, we begin the development of detailed drawings and plans, collaborating with engineers, contractors, and other specialists to ensure that the design is effective, efficient, and within the prescribed budget.

4.

Permitting, Approvals, and Bidding

Before construction can begin, we obtain the necessary permits and approvals from local authorities. Many times, the project is also ‘out to bid’ so we spend time answering questions for contractors to understand the full scope of requirements.

5.

Construction Administration

We work to make sure that the construction team builds the structure that was designed to the quality expected. Submittals & requests for Information are a daily requirement. Our job is not done until the construction is done.

Building a legacy, one project at a time

Whether you're an architect, designer, or simply someone with an interest in the built environment, our latest projects are sure to inspire and challenge you.
