David Sickinger

AIA, LEED AP

Principal

 

A native of Greenville, David joined the firm in 2004 and was elevated to corporate partner in 2014.  He has been the lead designer and project architect on many of Garvin Design Group’s notable projects, including Palmetto Compress Warehouse, SCRA’s Columbia Innovation Center including the McNair Center, the new entry addition to the Brooks Center at Clemson University, the renovation and expansion of USC’s Patterson Hall and Women’s Quad Residence Halls, the USC Baseball Player’s Lounge & Media Room addition, and the Williams Brice Stadium Video Board. He was also one of the lead designers for the renovations and additions to the Peace Center in Greenville, as well as the new sanctuary for Chapin United Methodist Church. He became a LEED Accredited Professional in 2008 and served as the President of Greater Columbia Section of the American Institute of Architects in both 2012 and 2013.  David prides himself on creative design solutions and his ability to communicate that design with 3D visualization and architectural multimedia. He works to stay abreast of current technology trends in order to provide efficient and creative design solutions for clients.  He acts as Garvin Design Group’s internal software authority, developing the internal BIM standards for project documentation. David also spearheaded the firm’s corporate rebranding in 2013 to mark its 10th anniversary, including the creation of the new company logo.  Beyond the studio, David and his wife welcomed their first child in April of 2018 and is having a blast with the little guy.  He enjoys tennis, playing on several league teams throughout the year, and always looks forward to fall and college football season, hands-down the best time of year.  He is also a self-professed Star Wars geek but is still fuming about ‘The Last Jedi’ and does not see how JJ Abrams can wrap this trilogy up in a satisfactory manner.
