Our Story

William F. Lynch, P.E., L.S. founded William Lynch and Associates in 1959 after serving as a structural and civil engineer with Allen & Kelly, and Vonnegut & Wright, two of the largest architectural firms in Indianapolis at that time.  He landed his first project, a bank at 86th Street and College Avenue featuring a unique, exposed concrete roof structure - the first of Bill’s many innovative designs.  With his extensive contacts in the Indianapolis architectural community, Bill quickly established himself as a competent, imaginative and trustworthy structural consultant.

In the ensuing years, Bill expanded the firm to handle the increased work load and to service his growing list of clients.  Partnering with Walter "Doug" Cheek, the company was known as Lynch & Cheek, Inc., and during this time, the firm designed several notable projects including:  the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the Market Tower Building.  By the late 70’s, the firm had transitioned to Lynch & Campbell, Inc.  Together, Bill and John Campbell continued expanding the firm’s already impressive portfolio, working on many important Indianapolis buildings including the 11-story Two Market Square Building and the 8-story St. Vincent's Professional Office Building.

Wes Harrison and Paul Brumleve joined the firm in 1979 and 1980, respectively. They were named Principals in 1987, and the firm became Lynch, Harrison & Brumleve, Inc.  Throughout the years, we have seen vast changes in the way buildings are designed, documented and constructed, but as the way we produce projects continually changes, our commitment to provide high quality and efficient design continues.  The values of honesty, cooperation, hard work and commitment that Bill Lynch embodied beginning over a half-century ago remain touchstones for all of us at Lynch, Harrison & Brumleve, Inc. today.
