This is Where We Started

Whitney Bailey Cox & Magnani, LLC was started on April 1, 1977, by Alexander (Sandy) Whitney, Jr., PE, Howard C. Bailey, PE, Paul E. Cox, PE, and Richard Wm. Magnani, PE, with a card table in Sandy’s living room and a project with Bethlehem Steel. After quickly outgrowing the rent-free space, the four partners moved into space on the sixth floor of the Federal Land Bank Building on St. Paul Street in Baltimore and never looked back.

In 1992, the first of several branch offices was opened in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.

In 1999, WBCM, LLC was formed to provide our clients and teaming partners with architectural services to complement our engineering services.

In 2002, the firm formed WBCM Construction Services, LLC, allowing WBCM to provide clients and teaming partners with comprehensive construction management and facility construction services.

In 2023, WBCM was acquired by TranSystems Corporation, a leading engineering and construction management firm since 1966. Together with WBCM, TranSystems employs 1,700 professionals from 60 offices nationwide, bringing national expertise with a local understanding of the communities it serves.
