Prior to the establishment of his own office, Tim practiced for seven years with two St. Louis firms. Five of those years were with BFTH Architects, where he worked his way up from intern to project architect on a 20-million-dollar airport expansion project. The remaining years were spent as project architect with the multi-disciplined Pearce Corporation, a nationally known architectural firm with extensive experience in the institutional fields of schools, medical offices and health care facilities. From 1978 until the reopening of his original office in 1987, Tim was the chief operating officer and principal architect for the firm of Risley Childers & Associates, Architects/Planners/Consultants, and Fort Smith, Arkansas. Practical experience involves all phases of the planning, development, and construction process including feasibility studies, programming, site evaluation, financing, design, and construction observation.
He has executed a wide variety of project types including industrial, commercial, educational, institutional, health care, residential, and restoration ranging in size from $50 thousand to $25 million in construction cost.
