History / About Us

The roots of Parker / Mudgett / Smith Architects, Inc. developed in 1952 when former principal Bolton McBryde opened an office in downtown Fort Myers. Wiley Parker joined this firm in 1962 and became a principal in 1966, when the present corporation was formed. Bill Mudgett was hired in 1968 and became a principal in 1973. Roger Smith joined the firm in 1972 and became a principal in 1987. Jeff Mudgett joined the firm in 1992 and became a principal in 2001.

Our longevity and success as a firm has resulted from a combination of traditional architectural expertise with an in-depth knowledge of this area's construction industry.  Bill Mudgett, Jeff Mudgett, Tyler Patak, and Sean Gilmore are registered architects with over 150 years of combined experience in the community, while Partner Roger Smith and John Hendry started their careers in the construction business, and were certified general contractors before joining the firm.   Tyler Patak with 38 years of architecture experience and Sean Gilmore with 23 years of architecture experience, are both Project Managers and are LEED APs (BD+C).   Robert Wiesner is the Assistant Project Manager for Production & Design.  Jennifer Smith is the Office Manager/Executive Assistan.

This particular combination of experience has served our clients well, in every aspect of the building process from conception to master plan to construction, and decades after.
