We are often asked what the letters in our name, “T” and “B,” represent. This is a story that we like to tell. T&B Planning was founded as Turrini & Brink in 1974 by Lou Turrini and Bob Brink, two industry leaders who believed that successful urban planning must combine the architect's creativity with the engineer's practicality. Turrini (the “T”) was the architect; Brink (the “B”), the engineer. Joining forces, our firm was born.
T&B Planning is operated by two Principals, Joel Morse and Tracy Zinn. Joel and Tracy represent the third generation of the firm’s ownership, passed down over four decades like a family business.
