Home Sweet Home
Atriax is now fully re-located to our new headquarters at 703 Main Ave. SW in Hickory. Hard to tell that our new home was a former motorcycle repair shop. And although we enjoyed our time in the beautiful historic Bailey House, we really appreciate the spaciousness, light, and airflow that comes with our reconstructed environment.

Welcoming Christopher Cervantes
Atriax welcomes Christopher Cervantes, our newest architect and a recent graduate of UNC Charlotte. Christopher grew up in Hickory and cultivated his love of architecture working with his general contractor Dad renovating houses. He's the first of his family to graduate from college and he's seamlessly integrated himself into the firm. His strong work ethic, attention to detail, and interest in anything and everything we're doing around here has made him invaluable already.

Atriax in the Community
Atriax showed up to help out at a Habitat for Humanity Build in Hickory in June. We were assigned to indoor work at the house you see in the picture (homeowner is bearded man in the blue shirt on the porch). And at another house's shell, we set up scaffolding for upcoming wall and ceiling work.
George Auten joined a contingent of non-profit organizations who traveled to Washington, DC to speak with legislative staffs in late April. Their topic: the importance of continued support of Ukraine in their war efforts. The group is pictured here in front of Senator Graham's office.
