Founded in 1957 by B. Atwood Skinner, Skinner Lamm & Highsmith has serviced many public clients throughout North Carolina. G. Barry Lamm joined the firm in 1961, shortly after its founding and William T. Highsmith joined the firm in 1975, becoming president in 1988. With offices in Wilson & Raleigh, the firm focuses on design quality in education, government, healthcare, & religious facilities. Our work has been recognized for numerous awards, including features in American School and University Magazine.

Our creative and flexible design response to the diverse needs of our clients has resulted in many enduring relationships. Maintaining these relationships with our consistent quality of service has given us experience in the development and realization of project programming, master planning, additions and renovations, as well as new construction. The most essential skill we offer, however, is our absolute commitment to effective communication with all participants involved in the design and construction process. The concerns, needs, and desires of the users of the design product are heard, acknowledged, and addressed by the members of our design team. This cooperation yields the most responsible, sensitive, and successful project possible.
