Hub + Weber Architects, PLC celebrates its fortieth anniversary on Friday.
The firm has been located in Covington since November 1, 1973 and has completed more than three thousand projects across the region.
That work includes offices, banks, retail centers, churches, senior and multi-family housing, and a variety of government buildings.
Some of the firm's most prominent projects include Champion Window Field where the Florence Freedom play, the renovation of the Federal Reserve building at Fourth & Race Streets in Downtown Cincinnati, the Diocese of Covington's new Curia offices, the Huff Building in Ft. Mitchell, and the Florence Senior Center.
Hub + Weber projects currently in the works include the City of Covington offices on Pike Street and the forthcoming Hotel Covington.
“We’ve had the privilege to serve so many clients and develop so many relationships throughout the years," said owner Gene Weber. "For me, it’s all about the people – both our clients and those who will use their buildings.”
Hub + Weber has influenced not only the region’s built environment, but also the community as well. Bill Hub, the firm’s founder established a legacy for involvement in the community and it is a legacy its current employees carry forward. The firm is involved with the community through organizations such as the Center for Great Neighborhoods, Art Off Pike, Renaissance Covington Board, and Holmes High School.
Hub + Weber uses their offices to actively participate in Covington’s arts corridor, including being a host site for gallery hops. Several of the firm’s architects are also artists producing work for their office as well as showing in area galleries. The grand space of the office, a former train station, is ideal for hosting large scale art installations and for hosting receptions. The firm is excited about being a part of the renaissance of downtown Covington and the energy and vitality of Pike Street.
“I have been with the firm for thirty-nine of its forty years in existence,” Weber said, “and while it’s fun to remember all the great building that we have designed it’s just as exciting to look towards the future and see our potential.”
