A full service design-build architecture firm specializing in custom homes and unique code compliant professional environments.
William Hicks was born and grew up in Litchfield, Minnesota. He started his college career at the University of Minnesota where he studied electrical engineering and computer programming. However, desiring a more tangible form of creative expression, he moved to Bozeman to enter the Architecture Program at Montana State University. During his time as a student Bill spent his summers and weekends working in the building trades doing everything from foundations to framing and wiring houses.
Bill has worked in the construction and design arena for over 30 years. His early professional career was spent working with various architects specializing as a CAD consultant, streamlining production for these firms. In late 1999, he opened Axolotl Group in Bozeman, and quickly became known as the leader in software support and integration and provided affordable, high quality design and construction documents. His work with the building industry led to him serving on the board of directors for the Southwestern Montana Building Industry Association where he encouraged quality and ethical building practices.
Over the last 20 years, his work has ranged from development spec homes to custom high-end ranches as well as large scale fitness centers, assisted living complexes and large housing developments where he became an expert at ADA and code issues. He is still known to throw on his tool bags and get his hands dirty, working on many buildings himself during his career.
In 2012, Bill returned to Minnesota to be closer to his family and continues to provide affordable, quality buildings in an ethical and streamlined manner.
