Joe Schneider, AIA, Principal

Joe Schneider is Managing Principal of Hord Coplan Macht’s DC Metro Area office.  Since joining HCM in 2012, Joe has played an integral role in growing the branch from a small, satellite office into a self-sustaining, 35-person operation serving DC and the surrounding National Capitol Region. The firm initially recruited Schneider to lead the growth of the Housing and Mixed-Use Practice in the region from the ground up, but his impact has extended beyond the specialty.

With over 20 years of experience, Joe Schneider has a broad array of expertise ranging from signature urban high-rise towers to urban community planning to medium density mid-rise buildings. He closely follows market and economic trends and has been a featured speaker on multi-family design trends for leading national trade associations. Mr. Schneider strives to find a balance between market and economic requirements of the owner and the aesthetic creativity demanded of the end user. He studies market conditions and construction costs to determine most cost-effective yet aesthetically pleasing building solutions.
