2000-2009

  • Henry Adams receives several ACEC Awards for Excellence. The Clarice Smith Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Maryland in 2001 opens as a world class performance venue. The firm also completes intricate renovations of Baltimore's historic Hippodrome (known as the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center) in 2005 and the Boston Opera House in 2006.

  • Henry Adams sees significant higher-education projects with the MSU Earl S. Richardson Library achieving ENR’s “Higher-Ed Project of the Year” in 2008. Other significant higher-education projects include the Murphy Fine Arts Building in 2001, John and Anne Wilson Hall Art and Music Building at Washington & Lee in 2006, and Morgan State Student Center in 2005. The firm's strength in customizing solutions makes it ideal for higher education projects.

  • Just as it did a century earlier, change defines the “noughties.” Change is reflected in globalization, the aftermath of 9/11, the 50 division expansion of MasterFormat, and the “great recession.”  Henry Adams evolves into a Limited Liability Company.
