To Blueline, architecture is about so much more than creating beautiful spaces in which to meet together or conduct business. It’s ultimately about people — inextricably linked to quality of life.
Their story begins in 2004, when Randy Seitz moved back to his hometown of Harrisonburg, Virginia to try his hand at running an architecture firm with his friend and partner, Ron Davenport. With seven years of experience heading a church design studio under his belt, Randy knew he had the know-how to make his community proud — and give back to them in the process. Blue Ridge Design Studio was born.
Built on a solid foundation of integrity, humility and generosity, Blue Ridge quickly gained respect in the region as a trustworthy building partner, designing treasured gathering places for the Harrisonburg community and adding prominent local universities to its roster. Then, in 2008, an economic recession hit.
Committed to weathering the storm, the Blue Ridge team regrouped, setting their sights on what they hoped would be a season of growth. Taking steps to increase capacity and bring new expertise to the table, the firm welcomed partner Anna Campbell to the team and relaunched under the name Blue Ridge Architects in 2010.
Their momentum only grew. In 2015, Randy obtained his “Class A” contractor license and launched Blueline Building Solutions — a move that enabled Blue Ridge Architects to add construction project management to its offerings.
