Mission Statement

As an integrated design firm, BartonPartners strives to provide the highest level of service to our clients. With an unrelenting dedication to collaboration, our creative efforts inevitably result in enhancement of the value of our projects and the physical environment within which they reside.


History of BartonPartners

Founded in 1990 by Thomas C. Barton, III as a sole proprietorship, BartonPartners evolved into a dynamic multi-disciplinary design firm with the addition of 5 equity Principals at the beginning of 2014.  With two offices – our headquarters in Norristown, Pennsylvania,  and a second office in Center City Philadelphia, BartonPartners offers professional design services throughout the eastern half of the United States, with a concentration in the megalopolis region of the northeast corridor. Over 80% of our project work comes through repeat clients.

As of September 1, 2017, Bruce Adelsberger, Bob Cogan, Matt Koenig, Seth A. Shapiro, and Bill Warwick completed their transition into full equity ownership of the firm, with Tom Barton retiring from the practice.  This new, nimble leadership will continue to build on the multi-disciplinary services and collaborative culture that has served our clients so well over the past several years.
