Celebrating 50 Years of Meaningful Design

We’re pleased to be celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2019!

Established in 1969, we’re proud to have become nationally known for consistently providing award-winning design, market expertise, innovation, and entrepreneurial thinking. We specialize in sustainable design for education, housing, and workplace markets.


We’re commemorating this milestone anniversary with events throughout the year celebrating our clients, employees, and the community. As part of our 50 for 50 campaign, we’ll complete 50 community service projects, honoring our longstanding history of supporting the community and dedication to positively impacting lives through meaningful design. Throughout 2019, we’ll share notable points of our history, design distinction, long-standing clients, and team members.

“While our firm has continuously grown since 1969, I believe that our 50th anniversary is a testimony to three important constants here at SWBR: great clients, great people, and great design,” Principal and Chairman of the Board David Beinetti, AIA said. “We have been fortunate to have all three in abundance.”


We’ve maintained a proud heritage of designing memorable places and buildings while building trusted relationships for 50 years. From day one, we’ve kept partnership, trust, and innovative problem solving at the forefront for our clients.

As a design firm, we offer a range of services including architecture, interior design, structural engineering, landscape architecture, and graphic design. Our portfolio continues to grow with education, housing, industrial, corporate, and municipal projects locally, regionally, and nationally — earning us nearly 150 industry awards. Moving forward, we’re focused on strategic growth to meet the needs of our clients and expand opportunities for staff, with the continued mission to positively impact lives through meaningful design.

Meaningful Design

Our core belief is that excellent architecture and place-making impacts everyone. For 50 years, the firm has designed projects on the belief that great buildings and spaces can inspire, influence, and enhance the lives of their users and the community.

This belief, and our mission to positively impact lives through meaningful design, is what President Thomas Gears, AIA knows will define the next 50 years. “We’ve grown significantly and our goal is to continue that momentum. We want to expand, not only our geographic reach, but the design services and technology we can offer our clients.”
