Charles Hendricks, AIA, CSI, CDT, CGP, CAPS, LEED AP B&C by Brianne Petrone | Mar 17, 2023 My name is Charles Hendricks and I am an architect, Rotarian, and father living in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia. I design projects of all types and styles (residential, multi-family, office, commercial, school, ecclesiastical, industrial, new construction, renovation, modern, traditional, and contemporary) for a variety of clients. There is no project too small or too large, if you value design, I am thrilled to help. In 2014, our firm was named “best small architectural firm” by the United States Green Building Council Best of Building Awards due to our work on sustainable, LEED Certified, EarthCraft Certified, and Energy Star projects in the residential, commercial, and industrial segments. We have been fortunate over the years to have clients that wanted to create buildings, businesses, and homes that are healthy, energy-efficient, and durable. I have dedicated my professional life to learning as much as possible about building science and functional design solutions. After graduating from Virginia Western Community College in Roanoke, where I grew up, I graduated from the University Of Virginia School Of Architecture. I then spent several years working with Ray at Gaines Group Architects learning the trade before going to and graduating from The University of Tennessee School of Architecture with a MARCH degree. I have a diverse background of work experiences, from life-guarding, delivering newspapers, managing Burger Kings, a line cook in the kitchen at The Virginian Restaurant, and selling t-shirts at Mincer’s. All of these opportunities coupled with my studies at UVA, Tennessee, and hands-on in the field have provided me with the skills to be able to better deliver efficient and functional design solutions. I am active in many community efforts including the Construction Specifications Institute, American Institute of Architects, National Home Builders Association), Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance, Harrisonburg Rockingham Chamber of Commerce, and the Shenandoah Valley Partnership. In addition, I volunteer my time to Eastern Mennonite School, Park View Mennonite Church Creation Care Committee, Rotary Club of Rockingham County, Harrisonburg Soap Box Derby, Bowl for Kid’s Sake, Real Men Wear Pink, Harrisonburg City Schools, and Massanutten Technical Center Foundation. My greatest joy in life is being a father to Charlie’s Angels. My girls, Hannah and Sophia, and I live in Harrisonburg, VA.
