1980s & 1990s
SFCS experienced rapid growth in the 1980s, becoming one of the country's top design firms in the long-term care field. Nursing and retirement projects accounted for a significant part of the firm's business.
The firm was incorporated as Sherertz Franklin Crawford Shaffner Inc. in 1988. The name was shortened to SFCS Inc. in 1999.
SFCS continued to design regional clinics and area hospitals, as well as projects for the U.S. Postal Service and other government agencies. Significant projects at Virginia Tech, Radford University, VMI, and Virginia Community College System led SFCS's growth in the collegiate arena.
The third generation of top management took leadership in the mid-'90s. Greg Jones became President and Chief Operating Officer. Manjit Toor became Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. Rudy Jennings became Senior Vice President. A flat organizational structure ensured active principal involvement in all projects.
As the new millennium dawned, Tye Campbell and Drew Kepley joined Mr. Jones, Mr. Toor, and Mr. Jennings as owners in the firm. Under their leadership, SFCS's staff of 65 managed projects with construction costs totaling over $500 million.
