Ammann & Whitney is a full-service architecture and engineering firm that provides design and construction services for public and private sector projects. The work of the firm includes new construction, renovations and adaptive reuse/historic preservation, interior design and sustainable design.

History[edit]

Ammann & Whitney was founded in 1946 by Othmar Ammann, a bridge designer, and Charles S. Whitney, a designer of innovative structures. Ammann & Whitney has since grown into an international firm. While working with a wide variety of projects including (steel, concrete, masonry and timber) bridges for vehicular, pedestrian and rail traffic, Ammann & Whitney focuses on long span suspension bridges. Examples of the firm's bridge work include the Delaware Memorial Bridge, Walt Whitman Bridge, the General Belgrano Bridge in Argentina, the Throgs Neck Bridge and most notably the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.[1]

Ammann & Whitney currently has offices on the East Coast of the United States and its headquarters in New York City. There are branch offices in Boston, MA, Philadelphia, PA, Pittsburgh, PA, Richmond, VA, Miami, FL, and Washington, D.C..
