Michael Collard AIA

Senior Project Director

Principal

I am passionate about working on projects with specialized and complex programs and finding solutions to challenging design problems. I enjoy collaborating with clients to create innovative solutions to their project needs and the gratification of watching an idea move from paper to the built environment.

I see every new project as an opportunity to meet and learn from new people and expand the understanding of how buildings change who we are, how we live, and how we work.

Approaching every project with an open mind, I believe flexibility is key to creativity and problem-solving. I excel at bringing the client and design team together and managing the personalities and strengths for the project's benefit. My ability to connect with clients and develop trust helps me lead projects and give clients confidence in the direction of the design.

No matter how aggressive the budget or schedule — or how challenging the design problem — there's a solution without sacrificing the design intent's integrity.

I'm listening. Let's do this together.
