ATLANTA, G.A. – December 2013 – Stevens & Wilkinson, a full service architecture, engineering and interior design firm with offices in Atlanta and Columbia, S.C., is proud to announce the uniting of their practice with Richard Wittschiebe Hand (RWH). Stevens & Wilkinson has a longstanding history of providing clients with a full range of professional design services similar to those offered by RWH, and is looking forward to strengthening its legacy as a combined practice.

“As we countdown to the firms 100th birthday, we are excited about reinvigorating our staff with an influx of talented from RWH,” said Ron Stang, AIA, LEED AP, principal and chairman of Stevens & Wilkinson. “Continued dedication to our team of highly skilled, award-winning professionals is one of the reasons why we are nationally recognized as leaders in our field. Our firm’s diverse portfolio includes projects for clients in the education, government, corporate, historic preservation and healthcare sectors – clients who are also intimately familiar with RWH, their projects and client-centered design philosophy. Principles that directly align with Stevens & Wilkinson’s unique ability to always offer our clients the very best design solutions.”

Since 1973, RWH has been providing architectural, interior design and master planning services to clients throughout the southeast. “We at RWH are thrilled to be combining our practice with Stevens & Wilkinson,” states Janice Wittschiebe, AIA, LEED ID+C, NCIDQ, principal and founder of RWH. “Each firm has a unique portfolio and experiences that when combined, complement and expand our overall capabilities, creativity and reach, especially as it pertains to planning, programming and architecture.”

Stevens & Wilkinson has been providing professional design services since 1919. Known for their ability to couple strong design principles with emerging technologies, the firm is the Architect or Engineer of Record for a number of historically important environments that include Georgia State’s new College of Law building, Georgia Institute of Technology’s Glenn & Towers Residence Hall Renovation, and downtown Columbia, S.C.’s Meridian building.

“We are looking forward to continued success at Stevens & Wilkinson. Throughout the years, Richard Wittschiebe Hand has been recognized for their outstanding work, receiving the 2011 AIA Georgia Firm of the Year Award as well as the 2010-2013 Outstanding IDP Firm Award,” continued Wittschiebe.

Design excellence, financial stability and personal service have made Stevens & Wilkinson one of the most experienced and reliable firms in the southeast. The firm provides a full range of design services including architecture, engineering and interior design, in-house. As a combined firm of design professionals, we offer integrated and well-coordinated services, imaginative design, technical  precision, and, most importantly, timely delivery.

“RWH has accomplished a lot in their history,” said Bill Clark, AIA, LEED AP, principal and president of the firm’s Georgia office. “I am very excited about the opportunities our newly combined firms will generate and look forward to a very bright future  together.”

RWH will move to Stevens & Wilkinson’s downtown Atlanta location in the Equitable Building at 100 Peachtree Street, effective January 1, 2014.
