NCARB Certified

Mr. Touchstone is President and Principal Bridge Architect of Touchstone Architecture and Consulting, P, A., a Bridge Architecture firm based in Tallahassee, Florida, providing services worldwide. 


Bradley C. Touchstone, AIA, has dedicated his career to the development of signature bridge projects and as such, has expanded the role of architects on these projects both nationally and internationally. Mr. Touchstone works with design teams and community groups to ensure that the bridge design selected fits in harmony with the local culture and environment. In his capacity as Bridge Architect he has developed design guidelines for repair and replacement of bridge projects world-wide.

Successful design of bridge projects requires a detailed understanding of bridges mechanics. There are very few architects that posses an understanding of bridges superior to Bradley’s. This acute knowledge of how bridges go together enables Mr. Touchstone to be a fully integrated part of the design team. The result is the infusion of aesthetic design from the very beginning of the project following a philosophy that Low Cost and No Cost Aesthetic Enhancements™ should be the first option. 


In addition to bridge design, Bradley has led many historic recordation and mitigation efforts of historic bridge structures. He understands the requirements necessary to navigate through the complicated and perplexing Sections 4(f) and 106 of the National Environmental Protection Act.
