THODA & ASSOCIATES, pllc

 

Long before its founding in 2006, the design team with Thoda & Associates has been impacting the Memphis Metro area for over forty years.  From 1978 to 2006, William Thoda was Executive Vice President of Design for Weston Design, Inc.  a subsidiary of Weston Companies.  During his time at Weston he was the guiding force behind all of their commercial, retail and industrial projects;  Bill oversaw the design and construction of many recognizable Memphis projects, including the Crescent Center, the Renaissance Center and the Memphis headquarters for Medtronic.

 

When Weston Companies downsized in 2006, Bill began his own firm, bringing two long-time Weston employees with him: John Galbraith, who joined Weston in 1989; and John Storms, who came on board in 1994. Bill and his Associates have continued  to provide high quality Building Design and Development projects throughout the region - a few of the projects the team has overseen is The Legacy Center in Memphis, MCR Distribution Center in Piperton, the 6450 Retail Center in East Memphis, and the Travure Office Building and Parking Garage in Germantown.
