HK Architects announces the promotion of Alex Reyland to Partner, joining Heidi Hefferlin and Clif McCormick to lead the growing architecture and interior firm.

Chattanooga, TN – July 5th, 2022 – HK Architects is pleased to publicly announce the promotion of Alex Reyland to the position of Partner with the firm. HK Architects, formally known as Hefferlin + Kronenberg Architects is a full service architecture and interior design firm based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The firm’s breadth of work runs the gamut from historic and modern properties to ground-up new construction as well as interior renovations and additions. 

Reyland’s project experience spans many industry sectors and states, including Tennessee, Alabama, Missouri, Texas, and Pennsylvania. Alex has worked at HK Architects since 2015 and has been a principal of the firm since 2019. He believes communication and collaboration are the key to successful projects. Collecting information, understanding the issues and pain points, and identifying solutions allow Alex and his team to execute a successful project. 

Alex graduated from Drury University with a Bachelors of Architecture where he focused on the implementation of Building Information Modeling (BIM) BIM into the architectural workflow. 

Heidi Hefferlin, Co-founder and Partner, said, “Alex fits the partner role well. When he first started working with HK, Alex worked hard to integrate BIM into our workflow. We now work with consultants and contractors who all utilize BIM which provides the opportunity for our clients to walk through the design before we break ground. In 2019, Alex became a partner right before a global pandemic. We weren’t sure how we would weather it all, but Alex helped us through constantly pushing the firm for more efficient workflows and communication. Our firm has grown, in large part, due to his leadership.”

Reyland lives on Signal Mountain with his wife and two dogs. He is an active member of his community and serves on the board of the local AIA chapter as vice president.
