The firm of Eyerman.Csala.Hapeman & Handman is the successor firm of several offices whose archives maintain an unbroken link to the early 20th Century Architectural Practice of Clark Wright Evans AIA.  With Architectural Registration in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, we have designed and completed a wide variety of projects throughout Northeastern and Northcentral Pennsylvania, as well as Northern New Jersey.  This office has been involved in large and small projects, new construction as well as renovations.

Eyerman.Csala.Hapeman & Handman is committed to innovative design solutions which combine regional architectural traditions and materials with 21st Century technology.  We believe that each project should be analyzed within the unique set of circumstances that its site has to offer.  These variables, when combined with a client’s program requirements, budget and energy considerations, produce a design that is responsive to the community and site on which it is located.

While we have designed many new buildings throughout Northeastern PA, for the past 30 years the majority of this firm's work has been in the design of additions, renovations and rehabilitation of existing buildings.  This type of architectural work demands special skills that can only be developed and honed over time.  Beyond a question of style, it requires the detailed knowledge of several previous generations' construction materials and methods.  The successful interface of today's systems, as well as the provision for future growth, with these older systems is an expertise that comes with both time and experience.
