Tim Devine, Jr., AIA, NCARB, has been named federal architecture principal, where he will work to develop strong partnerships with clients, from the pursuit phase to project delivery, including programming, design and construction close-out. 

Devine supports the Southeast region, bringing more than 35 years of design expertise to his new role, spanning a mix of federal, healthcare, science, education, commercial and energy sector experience.

He is well-versed in alternative delivery methods including over 14 years delivering design-build projects across the country in close collaboration with contractors and subcontractors.

“I really enjoy competitive design-build pursuits“where we get to innovate designs, evaluate construction costs, determine optimizations to reduce cost, provide better value and create a design that the client chooses over our competition,” Devine said.

Devine also excels at the intersection of design and delivery, ensuring his teams meet delivery requirements for large, complex projects.

"I am most passionate about design, construction, innovation and professional development because they’re all integrated," Devine said. "Architectural and engineering design is a differentiator and design carries through from programming through turn-over/opening. Innovation is key because we can’t stand still; in the vast majority of projects, we have yet to integrate advanced technological construction methods. Professional development is essential because we’re all learning — without strong mentors, and our own dedication and commitment to personal growth, none of the others can be achieved.”

Known for his calming leadership, positive attitude, and technical and creative thinking, Devine was most recently vice president, director of operations for ArchitecturePlus International api(+), a small well-established award-winning Tampa retail design firm. He’s also owned his own architectural services and construction company and has a patent for a modular panel construction system.
