“I love the early schematic phases when an architect first shows us some aggressive design challenges with a little hesitation. Tackling those challenges and making their design work is one of my favorite parts of our profession."
Matt is considered one of the firm's go-to experts on heavy timber and log structures, particularly high-end residential building projects, where aggressive design meets heavy snow loads and seismicity challenges. With a degree in Physics and Masters in Civil Engineering, Matt enjoys applying real world innovations to make the architectural vision a reality.
