STAFFThe firm employs approximately 20 technical staff (depending on project requirements), including more than 10 qualified, registered architects and a qualified interior designer.

BEE STATUSKMH Architects cc, although currently 90% white owned, has a 55% PDI staff complement and has a certified BEE rating of 3. This achievement is largely as a result of an ongoing mentoring, investment and support role which KMH Architects offers to disadvantaged students. KMH believes in meaningful broad based empowerment, which requires long-term commitment and trust.
In March 2000, KMH Architects formed a new company with wholly black owned Jonker and Barnes Architects, called Blueprint Architects (Pty) Ltd.

The new rating and accreditation system introduced to South Africa recently, has helped focus the industry on green methods and systems.
