Firm History

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 architectural staff at Ross and Schonder. 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 Principals in the firm.

In 2004, Ronald S. Gigler became a Principal in the firm, followed by Bruce P. Pollock and Eric S. Green in 2013.  With the addition of Ron as a Principal, the firm became known simply as RSSC Architecture. 

Today, RSSC Architecture’s staff consists of eight registered architects,  along with architectural and administrative support staff.

RSSC’s commitment to long-term client satisfaction is reinforced by our low personnel turnover and our pledge of personal attention to our clients and their projects. Our high ratio of registered architects allows us to provide each project with the level of attention that it deserves, from programming and conceptual design through occupancy. Maintaining our excellent relationships with our clients has afforded us the opportunity to enjoy a large amount of repeat business and referrals.
