Norris Hunt

Mr. Hunt’s career with John Portman & Associates (Portman) has evolved from an architectural intern to Project Manager with strong experience in commercial, hospitality, and institutional projects.

When he joined the firm in 1982, he brought a solid understanding of urban planning gained from hands-on experience with the Midtown North project, a system for neighborhood growth in Jackson, Mississippi, and two rehabilitation projects in Greater Atlanta. His project experience now covers many project types and buildings including classroom, laboratory buildings, hotels, and office/mixed use/retail.

Early in his career as an intern with Portman, he began to migrate towards management related aspects of various projects. Mr. Hunt’s ability to remain focused and calm in stressed-filled circumstances, along with people skills, and a sensitivity to the clients priorities, have uniquely qualified him for the role of project manager. His ability to liaise between the design team and the desires and ambitions of the client further enables the collaborative process of design to produce the best possible results.

Mr. Hunt’s exceptional ability and understanding of Computer Aid Design (CAD) have made him a key member of the committee that selects, updates and trains the architects at Portman in the latest computer technology. His ability and willingness to help his colleagues enables Portman to stay on the cutting edge of technology.
