How design comes to life

Synergy happens at many levels at The Boudreaux Group.  It happens when multiple players come together to achieve results that are not independently achievable.   This is what design is all about.   Our planners, interior designers and architects in South Carolina all believe in the collaborative design process and we thrive on the creative moments when a design goal takes shape.  We engage our teams of engineering consultants and value the insights they bring to the process.  Synergy is key to our clients’ positive experience of working with an architect.

Not only does our firm’s synergy apply to our design relationships, it also applies to our relationships outside the firm.  The Boudreaux Group has a history of service to our community and to our profession.  Over the years, our staff has served on boards ranging from the Columbia Design League and the Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties to the Chamber of Commerce and the Saluda Shoals Foundation.  Our staff has or continues to dedicate time to Historic Columbia, The Clemson Advancement Foundation for Design and Building, EngenuitySC, Sisters of Charity, the Catholic Health System, the Babcock Center, One Columbia for Arts and History and the Boys and Girls Club.  Included on our staff are a number of graduates from both Leadership Columbia and Leadership South Carolina.  We come together annually to contribute to the United Way and have also fielded walkers and fund raisers for the America Heart Association.  We believe in the synergy that comes from giving back.

Advocating for and serving our profession is also a part of the ethic at The Boudreaux Group. We have supported the efforts of seven AIA Columbia Presidents and two State AIA Presidents and numerous other board members.  The Boudreaux Group exemplifies service.  The Carolinas Chapter of the International Interior Design Association, The Midlands Chapter of the United States Green Building Council and the Urban Land Institute South Carolina have all benefited from the leadership and talent of The Boudreaux Group employees.
