In 1970, Martin Aitken, Burket Graf, Bruce Hazen, and Woody Hull were all looking for places to work, so they formed a Lincoln architectural consortium to share offices and personnel. Aitken, who had been building since the 1930s, was going to retire until Hoffman talked him into joining him. Hazen had worked previously with Hoffman on previous Kentucky Fried Chicken projects. The members and title of this consortium changed multiple times over the next two decades. After 1997, Bill Hoffman continued to practice individually while maintaining an office and secretary under the name Aitken, Hazen, Hoffman & Miller" until 2003. [1]
