HGE has provided continuous professional services to our clients for over 65 years. Our headquarters, located in Coos Bay, was established in 1952.

HGE-inc-Founders

HGE Inc., Engineers and Planners, and Harlan/Miller Associates, PC, Architects, shared ownership, staff, facilities and resources since 1980. In 1996, the two companies officially joined to become HGE Inc., Architects, Engineers, Surveyors & Planners.

In 2015 the company reorganized and became HGE Inc., Architects, Engineers & Planners. Former Principal Russ Dodge formed Dodge Surveying & Planning, providing surveying services for HGE as well as the general public. When HGE relocated to its current location, Dodge Surveying & Planning moved in to the office as well, allowing for a seamless transition and continued full-service to our clients.

Since 2017, HGE provides landscape architectural services.

In response to an internal shift in the Summer of 2019, HGE Inc. changed corporate name to HGE ARCHITECTS, Inc., no longer providing in-house civil engineering services.
