Our firm was founded in 1987 as Tevebaugh Associates Inc. by James Tevebaugh, AIA and Richard Stratford. Our first office was located in the heart of Wilmington, just a few minutes from our current location on the scenic Brandywine River. The firm’s early years focused on Master Planning, which lead to several high-profile projects including the fourteen story 220,000sf Chase Manhattan Bank and 40,000sf renovation to a 120 year old riverfront warehouse, which was re-purposed for ING Direct Bank’s first United States FDIC facility. This was the first of several projects that contributed to the re-development of the Wilmington Riverfront that continues to thrive today. With a growing portfolio our firm expanded into Philadelphia to serve a growing Higher Education client base, which included Widener University’s Chester Campus, and Neuman University’s Aston Campus. We began targeting healthcare focused higher education work that formed the basis of our healthcare practice, which serves clients in the Delmarva region including Christiana Care Health System and AI Dupont Nemours Children’s Hospital.
In 2016 the leadership of the firm was transitioned from Jim and Rick to Bill Lenihan, AIA, Sean Goodrick, AIA, and Shawn Crowley, AIA. This strategic transition included a name change to Tevebaugh Architecture, with a focus on building upon the foundation of the Tevebaugh name, and highlighting our core identity as leaders in the architectural design community.
