Introducing Henry Dagit, AIA, LEED AP
Henry grew up in a family of Philadelphia architects and first attended architecture school at Ohio State University but the lure of surf and sea called him to the Outer Banks where he continued to design and learned to build. He eventually transferred to North Carolina State University where he received his architectural degrees and expanded his project experience to include sophisticated pharmaceutical research and manufacturing environments. While these technology projects were a natural part of Research Triangle Park they provided a wonderful opportunity to expand and also serve large corporations regionally and even abroad. This has led to work on projects in three countries and nine states gaining licensure in four of those states. The cultural interchanges are cherished and have helped him realize that great buildings come from great teams and it is managing the relationships on those teams that drive the creation of successful buildings. Henry resides in Raleigh with his wife Vickie, two daughters, and a mean gray cat named Buckeye. He enjoys time with his family wrapped around sports and the outdoors with a special disposition towards surfing, sailing, basketball, and even mixed doubles tennis although he won’t admit to that.
