KSU Architecture alumni Chris Stailey and Jacob Mashburn (KSU B.ARCH, 2010) founded Agon Coordination, along with Micah Childs, in May 2013 in response to the growing need for BIM coordination services throughout the New York City area.

While collaborating together on the Madison Square Garden and rebuilding of the World Trade Center projects, these three came to realize that with Micah’s extensive experience in the MEP fields, Chris’s vision of approaching issues of architectural design with a macro to micro approach and Jacob’s ability to collaborate well across multiple facets of the construction process, their skills could be best utilized together, and thus Agon Coordination was born.

Since its inception, Agon has tackled many highly impressive projects, including providing BIM coordination services for the World Trade Center reconstruction, the Columbia University expansion with the Medical and Graduate Education buildings, the entire Hudson Yards development, Pier 17 and the Manhattan West development to name a few. Chris and Jacob credit their tenure at the Department of Architecture at Kennesaw State University as an integral part of providing the knowledge and resiliency it takes to handle some of New York’s highest profile projects.

The Kennesaw State Department of Architecture is extremely proud to call Chris and Jacob alumni of our program, and anticipate their many additional exciting projects and creative endeavors in the impending future. 

Agon Coordination is currently expanding their services to the Philadelphia, San Diego and Atlanta areas. Services include pre-coordination models, coordination, as-builts, construction phase scheduling and supply estimation. For additional information, please visit
