History

Although the title of ‘NORR Limited’ (Neish Owen Rowland & Roy) has only been used since 1986, the firm’s partnerships and traditions harken back to 1938 when John B. Parkin started his private practice in Toronto.  By 1947, he was joined by Edmund T. Parkin (Brother) and John C. Parkin (no relation).  Roy Marshall joined as a partner, in 1970, when John C. Parkin left to create his separate ‘Parkin Architects Planners’.  NORR now operates as one of the largest design firms in Canada. (Source)

History

(From Firm’s Website)
The company was first formed in 1848, when Matthew Hall opened a lead-work business in the UK. This later became the Matthew Hall Group of Companies. Separately, in 1883 Leonard Fairclough started a stone business in the UK, which expanded into construction at the turn of the century.
In 1982 Fairclough Construction merged with William Press (founded in 1913) to form AMEC plc. Six years later the Matthew Hall Group of Companies was incorporated into the AMEC Group.

HISTORY:
In 1958, Alexander Ewing, at the time working for his father’s firm, joined with the in house architect Stanley Cole in order to design the expansion of the Rohm and Haas offices in Philadelphia. Although initially the design ran into trouble due to the site’s inability to accomadate the needs of the company, Ewing and Cole managed to switch the location to a new site on Independence Mall, not far from the Liberty Bell. The resulting design recieved countless praise from the city due to it’s ability to expand while maintaining respect fro the park as well as the surrounding historic buildings.
In 1961 the firm was officially established as Alexander Ewing & Associates, with their headquartes in Philadelphia. Over the years the firm has taken on many partners including Michael P. Erdman, Joseph P. Eubank, Robert Cherry, and Robert Parsky, all the time changing the name of the company to their credit. But in 2003, following the death of partner Paul Brott and the departure of Bob Cherry, the firm took on the new name of EwingCole.
