About the Salute to Design & Construction

The first Salute was held in 1985 as one of twelve “Salutes” to various aspects of Springfield’s community (others included Healthcare, Military, Agriculture and Government along seven others) sponsored by the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce. In 1988, the Salute Council took over the planning and implementation of the Salute to Design & Construction and it has continued to evolve over the years.

Member Spotlight

Hood-Rich Architecture
58 Years in Business

Hood-Rich Architecture has been providing professional architecture services and interior design for over 58 years. Jack Hood founded the firm in 1963, the longevity of Hood-Rich and the ability of the firm to adapt to changing conditions over the past decades has been one of the accomplishments the firm is most proud of. Through the years, Hood-Rich has been privileged to employ numerous quality professionals who have been instrumental in their success. Still today, their team of designers focus on good design and quality service. This focus is paramount as they build lasting relationships with their clients, per Hood-Rich “Our existence would not be possible without the trust our clients have given us in our 58 years of service.”

Jack Hood was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, which was presented at the Salute to Construction awards banquet in 2016! Billy Kimmons of Hood-Rich is involved in leadership with the local AIA boards. He was the past president of AIA of Springfield and AIA Missouri. Billy also serves on the professional advisory board for the Drury Hammons School of Architecture.

A little-known retro history of Hood- Rich, they were the architect for several early Holiday Inn motor hotels throughout the United States, which can be seen in the above photo. Hood-Rich participates and has been a sponsor for the annual Salute to Construction event held every November.
