Habitat Digital Design and Construction Group was initially founded in 1984 by Mauricio Hernandez in Bogota, Colombia. With his hard work, vision, and courage, he built the company from the ground up and completed multiple successful projects, including single and multifamily residential units, various commercial projects, and institutional projects including hospitals and schools for over 20 years in Colombia. Mauricio is an Architect who graduated from one of the most prestigious universities in South America, Universidad de Los Andes, and is passionate and experienced in Architectural Design.
In 2001, Mauricio joined efforts with his brother German to establish a subsidiary in the United States to generate opportunities for their families, enjoy a better life, and offer their design and construction services to the Great Baton Rouge area. German is a Software Engineering, also from Universidad de Los Andes, has an MSc from the University of Exeter in Great Britain, and an MBA from Louisiana Southeastern University. German brought 20 years of experience in IT, leading projects in a variety of industries, and is passionate for Business Management, Customer Service, and Project Management.
Since childhood, Mauricio and German had enjoyed making projects together, putting to work their creativity and curiosity.
