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 50 associates contributing to over 900 projects.
We care about people and serving others through our expertise. We care about what’s next through studying current and future trends. Our values, culture and time are all centered around relationships with people. That is truly what makes us unique – at the center of what we do, is our passion for others.
For us, it’s more than a statement, it’s a vision that is implemented in our daily lives and interactions with those we seek to empower. Our partnerships are long-lasting because we strive to bring to life our client’s values through the realization of their goals and visions.
