One of Richmond’s biggest architecture firms has staked a claim near the nation’s capital.
Baskervill has expanded to Northern Virginia and taken out office space in Tyson’s Corner to support two employees working on projects in the Washington region. The lease there began April 1.
“For right now, most of the work from a production standpoint will be supported out of our Richmond office,” said Tracey Gould, marketing director at the firm. “If everything goes as planned, we would be looking to add some employees there in the future.”
Baskervill projects in the Washington area include the Residence Inn Arlington Pentagon City by Marriott, the Hyatt Dulles, the Kimpton Lorien Hotel & Spa in Old Town Alexandria and some work for Wells Fargo, Gould said.
The Tyson’s Corner office is to support John Currie, an architect the firm brought on in February 2012 and one other employee. Currie has been commuting between Washington and Richmond several times a week, Gould said.
Baskervill is one of the oldest architecture firms in Richmond, founded in 1897 as Noland and Baskervill. It has 96 employees and previously had offices in Roanoke and Beijing.
