RSSC’s history of, and continued commitment to, long-term employee satisfaction and engagement is reinforced by our low personnel turnover. Maintaining excellent relationships with our employees and clients has afforded us the opportunity to enjoy a large amount of repeat business and referrals.

John J. (Jack) Ross began practicing architecture as a sole proprietorship on March 13, 1964.

Eight years later, Jack Ross was joined by John F. Schonder to form Ross and Associates.

In 1975, the firm became Ross and Schonder Architects.

In the next few years, Ralph J. Sterzinger and Stephen D. Cupcheck joined the firm as architectural staff. Both became Principals, and the firm was incorporated as Ross Schonder Sterzinger Cupcheck, P.C. on July 1, 1988. In 1995 and 1996 respectively, Jack Ross and John Schonder retired, leaving Ralph and Steve as Managing Principals of the firm.

As the firm continued to grow and expand, Ronald S. Gigler became a Principal in 2004, and the firm became known simply as RSSC Architecture. Eric S. Green and Bruce P. Pollock were named Principals in 2013. In addition to their client service management responsibilities, Ron, Eric and Bruce assumed additional leadership responsibilities when they became Managing Principals and were named as RSSC’s new Board of Directors in September of 2016.

Our high ratio of registered architects allows us to pledge personal attention to our clients and their projects with the level of attention they deserve.
