Bob joined SVPA Architects in 2004 and became Vice President in 2010. His architectural background includes
civil/municipal buildings, office buildings for both corporate and institutional clients, K-12 and collegiate educational facilities, banks, healthcare and senior living. His abilities as a talented designer and a strong project manager make him a very well rounded architect. Bob’s responsibilities involve every aspect of the project from conceptual design through construction.

Bob takes personal pride in every aspect of his work, from quality design to quality documentation. He is detail-oriented making sure all the “i”s are dotted and the “t”s are crossed. He gains the greatest satisfaction when a client moves into a building, and thanks him personally for not only meeting their expectations, but for a building that exceeds their expectations.
