History

Founded in Huntsville, Alabama, in 2000, Spiritus is a strategic-growth, veteran-owned small business that has built its reputation on superior technical capabilities, accomplished personnel, and an aggressive work ethic -- all while synthesizing the big picture.

From providing engineering and management support to developing information and knowledge systems, our goal is to understand our customers and provide the highest quality services to achieve the results they need.

Our mission -- to find inspired solutions -- is embodied by our name, and more importantly by our corporate culture and people.

"Spiritus" - Latin phrase meaning: breathing, breath, exhalation, a sigh; the breath of life; inspiration; spirit, disposition; a high spirit, pride.


We are proud to be located in downtown Huntsville in the beautifully restored former YMCA building, built in 1912 and beloved by many generations of Huntsville families. We are just minutes away from Cummings Research Park and Redstone Arsenal.

In 2001, Fuqua & Partners Architects worked with the building's owner -- the law firm of Watson, McKinney & Artrip -- to restore many altered features to their original state, including the French doors along the front facade and a curved reception desk in the lobby. Most of the original architectural elements remain, including fireplaces, stairs with ornate balustrade, and tile and maple floors. Other details, such as the front steps which have been worn down by the feet of many generations of Huntsville children, the YMCA name above the front entrance, the YMCA cornerstone, and a portion of the circa 1950 wood basketball court, were unaltered. The restoration has won numerous design awards.
