NOVUS EXPANDS ITS REACH WITH LATEST ADDITION OF SPRINGLINE ARCHITECTS
CHARLESTON, SC (August 16, 2021) –
On August 1, 2021, Novus Architects opened its sixth location in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, with the merger of Springline Architects. Despite the uncertainty and onslaught of new challenges that all businesses have faced since the pandemic, the newest Novus office has an established history of industry excellence and thriving in the face of adversity.
Established in 2002, Springline’s three partners, Tracy Roberts, Mike de Haas, and Kevin Qualls, combined their talents to form one of the largest, full-service architectural firms in the U.S. Virigin Island territory. This collaboration has allowed the firm to provide well-designed and thoroughly executed projects for their clients throughout the Caribbean.
Springline’s established services and expertise in the region is a major component of why Novus pursued this partnership. “The moment we met the entire Springline Team, we felt our cultures were a great match, as well as, the desire to do great design, while meeting our clients needs. Over the course of close to 20 years, Springline has grown into one of the largest firms in the territory. From resorts, disaster relief, commercial, and high-end residential, Springline has successfully built a portfolio of work to be proud of.” - Joshua Allison, AIA, Novus Managing Principal
“The approach that Novus takes in producing great designs and in meeting clients needs perfectly meshed with our philosophy. Over the last 20 years Springline has worked on a broad spectrum of projects in the Virgin Islands, and we feel that this next step with Novus will further increase the expertise and capacity that will benefit our projects, clients and Islands.” -Mike de Haas, AIA, LEED, Springline Principal
Moving forward, some of the exciting projects we will be working on are: The Office of Disaster Recovery (which span across government agencies), WTJX Broadcast Center, Caneel Bay Resort, several high-end residential projects and more.
Novus Architects was founded in 1992 by one architect working for one client. It didn’t take long to grow as the demand also grew for our creative process and commitment to exceptional customer service. Today, with offices in Atlanta, Asheville, Charleston, Charlotte, and Jacksonville, Novus has a mission to create highly functional, beautiful spaces that are more than brick and mortar, or fixtures and furniture – spaces that foster human interaction, discovery and deep connection.
