An idea that transcends a single name, or partners names, but incorporates us together with you, for our strength in numbers, our combined passion, our enhanced vision, and our ability to complete the exacting process of design delivered through construction resulting in your goals manifested in physical space.
AND-COMPANY is formed in the spirit of collaboration, a collaboration of architects, interior designers, engineers, visualization artists, and industry professions poised to deliver on each aspect of our clients demands. We are local, we are regional, we are international, and we are with you from start to finish. You may have known us before, but you’ve never experienced us in the spirit of AND-COMPANY and we invite you explore what makes us the clear choice for moving forward.
We thought about the simplicity of starting with our names, but we quickly realized our names were the smallest part of what we do. Those of us that formed AND-COMPANY have known each other our entire careers. We’ve always been the team that delivered the highest, most complicated, often award winning projects within previous firms.
What we’ve recently come to embrace is the fact that while we had lost touch with one another as we began our separate interests, we never fully disconnected from one another in the spirit of what made each of us better together with one another, AND-COMPANY. The familiar faces, and names, of our collaboration are listed as a brief statement of qualifications for our venture. We are sure you’ll not find another team as in tune with the process, in tune with each other, and joined in the spirit of excellence.

With the number of emergency calls increasing, a new building is desperately needed and SEMS will hold fundraisers to pay for the new building, which could take several years.
During the past year the project has evolved from infancy to moving forward with hiring And Company as architect for the new station.
"AND Company takes great pride in its selection to lead the preliminary architectural and interior design efforts for Smithsburg Emergency Medical Services, Inc. much needed expansion.” said Todd Harshman, AIA of AND Company. “As a graduate of Smithsburg High School, with family and friends residing within the service area of SEMS, I can acutely appreciate the need for efficient, comfortable, and flexible space for the growth of EMS services in the area.”
Not only will this proposed building vastly improve working/living conditions for the stations crew, it will become a community resource for several generations to come.
“We have been actively looking for our next expansion opportunity, and this new community in Centreville is just the right fit,” said RaeAnn Butler, President/Administrator of Edenton Retirement Community. “Both the Centreville community leaders and Edenton’s directors want this project to move forward. That partnership is what will help make it successful.”
A contract to purchase six acres of land within the Centreville Business Park in Queen Anne’s County has been executed. AND Company of Greencastle, PA, will take on the design of the facility.
“AND Company is beyond excited to lead the collaborative architectural and engineering design efforts for Edenton’s Centreville location,” said Todd Harshman of AND Company. “We understand that breaking ground to establish a new facility is no small feat, but we welcome this unique challenge and look forward to the results of our combined passion—an impeccable neighborhood for Edenton at Centreville residents.”
