Wisnewski Blair & Associates Changes Name to HGA Mid-Atlantic
Wisnewski Blair & Associates, which became a wholly owned subsidiary of Hammel, Green and Abrahamson in January 2011, is changing its name to HGA Mid-Atlantic.
HGA Mid-Atlantic’s offices remain at 44 Canal Center Plaza, Alexandria.
“Our new name reflects our growing visibility regionally and nationally,” said Pat Halpin, AIA, vice president and principal with HGA Mid-Atlantic. “WBA has a strong reputation serving the commercial, federal and public sectors in the Washington, D.C. region. Since our acquisition by HGA, we have combined our traditional strengths with HGA’s architecture, engineering and planning expertise in healthcare, higher education, arts and community work nationally. HGA and WBA have always shared core values for client service and design excellence.”
WBA was established by Joseph J. Wisnewski, FAIA, PE, and Ray Lewis, AIA, in 1976. Luther C. Blair, Jr., AIA, became a partner after joining in 1977. Today HGA Mid-Atlantic employs approximately 60 professional team members.
“This is an exciting opportunity for our firm,” said Luther Blair, vice president and Chairman of the Board, HGA Mid-Atlantic. “I look forward to the new opportunities and greater benefits we will bring clients through our combined strengths with HGA.”
Among HGA Mid-Atlantic’s notable projects are the Washington Headquarters Services for the Department of Defense in Alexandria, Virginia; the Northern Virginia Resident Agency for the FBI Field Office in Manassas; several ongoing projects for George Mason University in Fairfax; the Virginia Department of Transportation Administration Building and Virginia State Police Division 7 Headquarters in Fairfax County; and Patriot Ridge in Springfield.
