Chauncey completed a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design at Southern Illinois University in 1972. He then pursued a Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Arizona and graduating in 1981. He then worked for several Tucson architecture firms including Buffington & Hassen, Kim Acorn & Associates, James M. Smith & Associates, and Douglas Seaver & Associates. Licensed in September 1982, Chauncey opened his own practice in June 1984 which he continues to operate. His work has included nearly every project type: Tenant Improvements: offices, schools, restaurants, medical, warehouse, new construction, remodel and renovation for custom residences and guest houses and production housing, charter high schools, churches and industrial buildings. Chaunceys' recent projects include three restaurants in Tucson and a church on Mount Lemmon - Mary Undoer of Knots Byzantine Chapel, Bell Tower and Ramada. The chapels' Center Dome Pantocrator (Icon Writing) is by Chuck Albanese. Chauncey has formed his practice around the design philosopy of infusing an academic, create, individualized, andinnovatorive approach to each design, which provides a personal expression that merges the owners' expectation with the architects' intepretation. Chauncey has completed more than 500 projects in his practice.
