Moody Nolan Welcomes Three AIA Fellows to the Firm

Moody Nolan has welcomed three American Institute of Architects Fellows to the firm, adding their impressive resumes to a growing national team.

David B. Meleca, FAIA, NCARB, LEED AP BC+D, joins Moody Nolan as Principal and Director of Classical Design after many years as founder and owner of David B. Meleca Architects in Columbus.

Over the years, David has become known for his achievements in traditional architecture, design and documentation. David’s work gained his organization recognition by the Classical Institute as one of the top 100 classical firms in the world.

He also has been commonly considered one of the top five architects in the country for traditional Catholic church design. At Moody Nolan, David also will apply his deep talent in education, multifamily, office, residential, restaurant and retail architecture to other unique design opportunities.

“David has had a wonderful career on his own, and we are thrilled that he has agreed to bring his unique talents to our firm,” said CEO Curt Moody.

Tim Fishking, FAIA, NCARB, comes to Moody Nolan as Principal and Healthcare Practice Leader.

“With more than 30 years as a healthcare architect and planner, Tim will help us continue our steady growth in healthcare and will work with key staff and leadership in Moody Nolan offices nationwide,” Moody said.

Tim, who most recently served as principal and practice leader at HOK and spent more than 30 years at NBBJ before that, has a passion for offering patients the best care environments and a desire to enhance the ability of healthcare providers to serve them.

Over the years, he has worked on some of the most important healthcare projects around the country and abroad, including projects in Russia and Asia.

Besides his work on hospitals, ambulatory centers and other healthcare facilities, he brings valuable experience in mixed-use development, government buildings, academic facilities, and corporate offices.

Bernard J. Costantino, FAIA, NCARB, provides Moody Nolan deep experience in academic architecture and planning after serving as the university architect at The Ohio State University for 18 years. Prior to that, he worked at NBBJ for 19 years. He will provide additional leadership depth on major projects around the country.

Bernie has a vital understanding of urban environments and was responsible for establishing an order for student housing, arts and health sciences districts on the Ohio State campus in Columbus.

“At Ohio State, Bernie was instrumental in transforming one of the largest campuses in the country, providing expertise to campus planning, building design and project delivery,” Moody said. “We’re excited to bring him on board as part of our team.”

David, Tim and Bernie are all based in the Columbus office.
