Architectural firm names new chairman
Burt Pinnock has been named chairman of the Richmond-based architectural firm Baskervill.
A Baskervill principal and fellow of the American Institute of Architects, Pinnock succeeds the firm’s longstanding chairman, Brent Farmer, who moved into an advisory emeritus role earlier this year.
Pinnock serves on the Historic Richmond Foundation Advisory Board, City of Richmond Board of Zoning Appeals, Venture Richmond board of directors and Virginia LISC (Local Initiatives Support Corporation) advisory board.
He is also chair of the Commonwealth of Virginia Art & Architectural Review Board, co-chair of the Richmond 300 Advisory Council, and the creator and co-founder of Storefront for Community Design.
Founded in 1897, Baskervill is one of the nation’s oldest continually operating architectural firms.
