2018 Craig and Mimi Spangler Lecture

Description:

Thirty (30) years ago, Wheeler Kearns was created on the philosophy of a “collective practice.” The firm passionately purses work ranging in scale and type with intellectually challenging programs and involves clients who are the end users or surrogates for the public. These types of projects have typically been institutional, not for profits, retail or residential.
