40 Successful HCAI Projects in 5 years

November 14, 2023

At Hilliard Architects, we take immense pride in the accomplishments of our team members and their outstanding contributions to the field of architecture.

Today, we are delighted to shine a well-deserved spotlight on one of our own, Mr. HCAI himself, Jorge Navarro, Assoc AIA, CSI, CDT. We celebrate Jorge's incredible journey of overseeing 40 successful HCAI projects over the past five years. Join us as we explore the insights and dedication that have led Jorge to this remarkable milestone.

Many have asked, "What's your secret, Jorge?" In response, Jorge humbly shares, "There is no secret; you just need to pay careful attention to Chapters 12 and 11B of the California Building Code." This emphasis on knowledge and strict adherence to building regulations has been the cornerstone of his impressive career.

One of the standout features of Jorge's accomplishments is his association with Hilliard Architects and our unique bonus incentive system. We offer a generous $100 bonus to our team members for projects that receive no back-check comments. While no back-check comments is indeed rare, Jorge Navarro's dedication and precision have earned him two of these esteemed bonuses in the last five years.

​​​​​​​Jorge's commitment to excellence was further highlighted when he came incredibly close to securing a fourth bonus. With only one minor architectural and life safety comment necessitating a change in a single word, he narrowly missed the financial incentive. However, his dedication did not go unnoticed; he was recognized with a commendable HCAI report card.
Jorge Navarro's remarkable journey of overseeing 40 successful HCAI projects is a source of inspiration for the entire Hilliard Architects family. It serves as a reminder of the power of expertise, dedication, and unwavering commitment to the California Building Code.

​​​​​​​As we celebrate Jorge's incredible achievements, we are reminded of the importance of meticulous attention to detail and a profound understanding of building regulations, setting the standard for excellence in the field of architecture and construction.

At Hilliard Architects, we are proud to have Jorge as part of our team, and we look forward to his continued contributions to our firm's success.

We are experts in streamlining the HCAI review and approval process.
