President and Owner
With high-profile projects such as Triune, Edwards Ranch, and Viridian on his resume, Nolan Bradshaw’s experience is equal parts familiar and distinguished. Nolan and his North Texas–based team have worked on a host of projects across the nation ranging from stand-alone restaurants to office parks spanning thousands of acres. The capability to work in this range speaks to the depth of Nolan’s knowledge when it comes to developing commercial architecture space and reveals why he is a successful and award-winning architect.
Whether it is a 10,000-acre mixed-used development or a 65,000-square-foot office park, masterminding massive projects takes having a grand vision plus an eye for the small details—and Nolan has both. He specializes in the master planning, design, construction and real-estate finance of community, mixed-use, office, multi-family, institutional, retail, and industrial projects.
Nolan’s dedication to his clients and crafting attractive, practical solutions results in projects causing a neighborhood’s value to flourish. He is committed to improving the built environment through urban development and loves breathing life back into ghost-town historical districts, creating spaces where communities can thrive once again.
Nolan’s commitment to making the world a better, more harmonious place doesn’t end at the office. The Fort Worth City Manager appointed him to the Development Advisory Board, where he aids City staff on municipal development challenges. Nolan also serves his city as Chairman of the Governmental Affairs Committee with AIA Fort Worth as well as participating in the Real Estate Council of Greater Fort Worth’s Committee for Public Affairs. In addition, he joined the Texas Society of Architects’ Government Affairs Steering Committee (GAScom), a group that sets the Society’s state legislative agenda. He shares his time with the All Saints Alumni Association and the Texas Tech Alumni Association and finds extra joy through volunteering for various programs with his faith community, Christ Chapel Bible Church of Forth Worth.
“Leave preconceived notions in the past and approach each project with a fresh perspective—we are a change in paradigms. Cornerstone does not just construct mixed-use developments, we build lifestyle centers.”
Director of Architecture
Ryan McGuire, AIA, CSI, CDT, believes that each project he takes on is another opportunity for greatness and community improvement. He strives to make each architectural undertaking more outstanding than the last, always adding to the list of benefits he can offer clients and project owners. His extensive resume includes work on government and commercial buildings as well as schools and residential developments.
Ryan has been dedicated to his craft since his high school years, getting his start as a draftsman in San Angelo, Texas. He continued to enhance his skills while studying architecture at Texas Tech University, where he later became a graduate lecturer for the College of Architecture. Since then, he has been a key part of several stellar design and planning teams across the state of Texas, going on to win several awards for his renovation work on historic buildings in Fort Worth.
Outside of the office, Ryan combines his love of golf with his love of community building, serving as a volunteer lead coach for First Tee – Fort Worth, teaching young people the finer points of the game as well as essential life skills such as leadership, managing conflict, and planning for the future.

For Jason Felix, each day is another opportunity to serve with honor. His eight years in the U.S. Army as a Combat Engineer Officer laid the foundation for his outstanding leadership skills, while his time overseeing critical offshore drilling projects strengthened them. Today, Jason puts his multifaceted talents to use on behalf of construction clients. His familiarity with highly regulated environments and ability to bring dissimilar teams together across domains makes him the clear choice for massive, complex jobs.
Jason is results-oriented and quality-focused. This philosophy extends to the relationships he builds with his clients and team. He motivates through encouragement and teaching, calling colleagues into the learning process and making them stakeholders in each project’s success. His all-in style lends itself to mastering logistics and streamlining operations through hands-on involvement.
The projects Jason has worked on testify to his management prowess. Most recently, he served as superintendent for three wildly varying projects: an apartment building, a public works facility, and a pet hospital. Each of these projects featured a schedule and budget determined by Jason—schedules, and budgets that he ensured each undertaking met. He directly oversaw resource allocation, project accounting, and control, all while providing technical direction and confirming compliance with safety and quality standards. His resume also includes 200-plus–unit living complexes, parking garages, and retail spaces with price tags in the multimillions.
When Jason isn’t working out the intricacies of client satisfaction, he enjoys spending time with his wife Alicia and eight-year-old son Stryker, hunting, wake surfing, and riding dirt bikes. Jason’s favorite pastime is living vicariously through Stryker by watching him compete in sports and other activities.
