Our Background

Berardi + Partners was established in 1979 as Berardi/Plaisted Architects in German Village, a historic district of Columbus, Ohio.  Founding Partner George Berardi endeavored to create a firm that serves and satisfies each of our client’s needs through effective design and planning.  Our firm culture is grounded in family values and respect, both with our associates and our clients.  For this reason, we view our firm as an extension of our family and communities we serve.

For nearly 40 years, we have maintained steady and consistent growth which started with the hiring of Chris Bruzzese in 1981 as the first associate, and Partner since 1992.  With focus on service to our clients and community, George and Chris have grown the firm to over 45 associates providing Architecture, Interior Design, and Engineering services for more than 900 projects.  With a conservative approach to expansion, we opened a second office in Cleveland, Ohio in the heart of the Euclid Historic District to further enhance service to our clients.  In 2015, our Columbus office relocated to the thriving community of Grandview Heights, just northwest of downtown to accommodate future growth.

Our Team

Our highly experienced and diversified staff, which includes 10 licensed professionals, continues to effectively manage a broad range of work.  Our offering of multi-discipline services provide seamless coordination between architecture, interior design, and engineering, ensuring cost effective solutions in design, operations, maintenance, and sustainability.

As Managing Partner and Design Strategist, George continues to foster growth and new opportunities for the firm working collaboratively with each associate to enhance the client’s vision.

We are all looking forward to the next 40 years of Berardi + Partners.
