The predecessor firm of Ames & Whitaker was founded in Waterbury, CT in 1947 and became a professional corporation in 1970. In 1990 the firm name became Ames & Whitaker. Our office is located one block west of the Green in downtown Southington, Connecticut.

At Ames & Whitaker, each member of our staff is given the opportunity to gain the depth and breadth of experience that is essential for his or her technical and professional growth. However, it is, and will continue to be, our policy to designate a principal of the firm to work with our clients in an active role from inception to completion. Due to the size of the firm, the principal-in-charge is a working member of the team with an intimate knowledge of the entire project.

The firm has received awards for excellence of design for public and private clients from organizations such as the American Library Association, the American Institute of Architects, the Connecticut Building Congress and AIA Connecticut.

As an established, well-managed corporation, our financial stability has been consistently above question. Financial statements, bank and trade references can be supplied upon request.
It is a guiding premise at Ames & Whitaker that outstanding design and technical ability must be supplemented at all times by an awareness that the reason for our success is our perception of architecture as a service to our clients.
