Lemay Erickson Willcox Architects was founded in 1986 by Michael LeMay, AIA, and Paul Erickson, FAIA.

In 2005, Virginia AIA bestowed the chapter’s highest firm honor, the David Fitzgibbon Award, on LeMay Erickson Willcox Architects to recognize the firm consistently producing distinguished architecture for more than 10 years. In 1993 Jared Willcox, AIA, joined the firm bringing strong credentials in commercial architecture and residential development. Neal Roseberry, AIA, joined the practice in 1994, bringing extensive expertise in the design of religious facilities. Christopher Kehde joined LEWA in 2002 and became a partner in 2015 to lead the public safety portfolio.

Each firm is well-known for working collaboratively with community partners, fostering enduring client relationships and designing buildings that have a positive impact on the people who use them.
