Clarksburg Architecture Firm Signals Growth

WYK Associates, Inc.’s New Hire Adds Range of Skills to the Company

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – WYK Associates announces a new staff member: Mr. Joe Sinclair, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP BD+C, CDT, joins the firm.
Mr. Sinclair complements WYK Associates, Inc. in his role as a Project Architect with a focus on designing high performance buildings.

Prior to joining WYK Associates, Inc., Joe worked with a Charleston, WV architecture and engineering firm on a variety of commercial, residential, and historic preservation projects. Prior to his work in Charleston, Joe worked as a Project Architect following his enrollment as Intern Architect at an Atlanta, GA architecture firm.

“The practice of architecture is a life-long learning process. Every day brings new challenges, opportunities, and technologies that must be approached with an open mind. The right answer is not always obvious, but can often be found somewhere within the collaboration of all participants”, says Sinclair.

For Joe, working in Harrison County is a homecoming of sorts. His hometown is Grafton in Taylor County, where he attended high school. After high school, Joe joined the West Virginia Army National Guard where he served a total of nine-and-a-half years including a year-long tour in Iraq.

Joe holds a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology from Fairmont State University, and received his Master of Architecture degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA. Joe earned merits as a Program Director at the Kanawha Valley Community and Technical College where he started the Associate in Applied Science degree in Construction Management.

Passionate about building science and the design of the building envelope, Mr. Sinclair shares his expertise outside of the professional realm. As an Adjunct Professor for BridgeValley Community and Technical College in South Charleston, he still teaches in the Construction Management Program.

“We are extremely excited to have Joe join our team! We feel his experience and knowledge in building envelope design and green building will complement and enhance our firm’s core design principles and expertise”, says Swiger.

As Past Chair, Joe serves on the Board of the West Virginia Chapter of the United States Green Building Council. He currently lives in Charleston, WV with his wife and two sons.

WYK Associates, Inc. is a team of passionate architecture and planning professionals that provide individual solutions to their client’s building challenges and aid them in planning and executing the most complex architectural endeavors.
