Wigen Tincknell Associates was founded in Saginaw, Michigan, in 1947 by Frederick E. Wigen. It was later incorporated under the name Wigen Tincknell & Associates, Inc. when Leslie D. Tincknell became a partner in 1963. Our firm's legacy has always been one where the client's needs come first while maintaining the highest level of professional services and design.
Throughout the years our firm has evolved from one generation to the next. Five generations after it began, we have chosen to honor our heritage and take on the name of WTA Architects to be our mantra as we look to the future.
The number one goal of WTA Architects is to continue our legacy of great client relationships, great design and overall great architecture. ~ Kurt Fogelsonger, President
