The firm now consists of Nick Zimmerman and Henry Toebes, with James having retired in 2017. Both are licensed architects and graduates of Ball State University's College of Architecture. Over the years, relationships have been established with contract consultants who provide engineering services, CAD assistance, interior design, and code consultations for the firm.
