Mark S. Rickher, PE
President, Managing Principal
Mark’s role in the firm as Managing Principal involves some of the most challenging projects undertaken by the firm. He is responsible for managing and designing large scale multi-phase, fast-track, and design-build ventures. This role brings him into direct contact not only with our clients but with many of the largest owners and contractors in the country.
Mark’s background in both architecture and structure engineering enables him to bridge the communication gap that frequently arises between architects, engineers, and contractors. This background has proven extraordinarily beneficial in proceeding with the design of fast-track and short schedule projects with only limited architectural design concept information available. He has provided an important element of our firm’s successful reputation amongst the owners and clients that we have worked with. This success is the reason for the many continued repeat clients that our firm enjoys.
