Gorman Richardson and Lewis Architects celebrate 35 years

On June 30th, 77 Main Street was bustling with activity, as the offices of Gorman Richardson and Lewis Architects celebrated 35 years of serving New England. Mike Gorman and Scott Richardson started the company in 1976. Some saw this as a risky business venture as the nation was currently in the midst of an economic recession. Over the years however, GRLA has established itself as one of the premiere architecture firms in New England, working on many prominent Hopkinton based projects including Legacy Farms and EMC. Watch the HCAM News video for more on the celebration.
