The Beatles recorded Abbey Road; 400,000 people converged for the Woodstock Music and Art Fair; Neil Armstrong walked on the moon; and the Boeing 747 made its initial test flight. Amid these revolutionary events, William “Bill” Ward Moseley left his position as a principal in a prominent Richmond, Virginia, architectural firm to establish his own practice in the city.
James H. Hening Jr. joined Bill as a second owner, at which time the firm became Moseley-Hening Associates (MHA). Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, MHA’s portfolio of work expanded to include private residences, schools, commercial buildings, government, and military facilities.
Having previously served as business development director and board member, Robert “Bob” L. Mills, PE succeeded Bill Moseley and became president, chief executive officer, and chairman of the board of the firm newly named The Moseley Group. During Bob’s 23-year tenure, our firm opened multiple offices in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina; entered the higher education and justice markets; and became a leader in sustainable, high performance design.
1993 The Moseley Group established an office in Virginia Beach to serve higher education clients across Virginia as well as public school systems in the eastern part of the state.
1995 A merger with The McClintock Group expanded our educational portfolio and allowed us to better serve clients in the northwestern part of Virginia and we became known as The Moseley McClintock Group.
1997 A merger with IV Harris immediately solidified our position in the justice marketplace and our firm name changed to Moseley Harris & McClintock.
2002 After merging with Wilkins Wood & Mace, we became known as Moseley Wilkins & Wood in North and South Carolina, which allowed our firm to strengthen our presence in the region and fortify our position in education, justice, and civic markets.
2004 While we were already known as Moseley Architects in Virginia (2002), the firm officially became known as Moseley Architects across the region.
With more than 40 years of experience as a K-12 educator, school superintendent, and university professor, Stewart D. Roberson, EdD, joined the firm as president, chief executive officer, and chairman of the board.
2018 Marks Thomas merged with Moseley Architects, bolstering Moseley Architects’ ability to serve clients in the Maryland region, strengthening its existing presence in the senior living market, and allowing it to become active in the multifamily housing marketplace.
