Peter J. Lutz and A. Teen Vebares left Kinsley Construction Inc.’s design arm, LSC Design Inc., to start their own architectural and design firm about a year ago. That firm, Core-Design Group, is competing with LSC many ways.

Core serves Pennsylvania and Maryland, where LSC does nearly all of its work. Core is based in York Township, which neighbors York, where LSC is based. Core recently opened an office in Perryville, Md., about an hour’s drive from Kinsley’s office in Timonium, Md. And Core employs other former LSC workers, said Donna Sampedro, Core’s administrative assistant.

Lutz and Vebares left LSC on good terms, Sampedro said. Lutz worked at LSC for about 11 years, most recently as a project architect. Sampedro didn’t know Vebares’ tenure with LSC, where he last was a project manager. Lutz is Core’s president, and Vebares is the company’s vice president. Neither could be reached for comment by press time.

Core, which employs five people, would like to start working in Delaware, Sampedro said. The business can handle various kinds of building projects, including commercial, industrial and educational. One of its biggest projects was designing Shenk & Tittle Inc.’s new, 35,000-square-foot headquarters in Hopewell Township, southern York County.
