The architectural firm once known as Ballard, McKim and Sawyer, AIA, is known as BMS Architects, PC, as of 2008. The company has been based in Wilmington, North Carolina.

The firm was founded in 1955 by Herbert McKim and Frank Ballard. Bob Sawyer joined in 1959. It became a leading firm in eastern North Carolina, known for experience in coastal architecture as well as in educational facilities from elementary through post secondary work. Founded originally as a partnership, the firm underwent a transition to a professional corporation in 1988.

Herbert Pope McKim was born on January 10, 1928, in Robersonville, North Carolina. He received a degree in architecture from North Carolina State College in 1950, and he first worked with Lesley N. Boney Architects in Wilmington, North Carolina. He died on March 3, 2010, in Wilmington.
