Gardner/Fox is a full-service design/build construction firm Founded in 1987 and based in suburban Philadelphia
This business, like many small businesses, evolved from a friendship between two ambitious young professionals. Brook Gardner, an engineer from Virginia, and Mark Fox, an architect from Kentucky, bought fixer-upper townhouse shells on the same block in Center City Philadelphia. The two future partners became close friends while they “lived” in and gut renovated their homes. They discovered a common interest in designing and renovating homes and buildings, and after a brief career stop with Historic Landmarks for Living, the largest historic building renovation company in the country; they started their own design and consulting firm.
