Bruce Yoder

Project Coordinator

Bruce has worked on projects ranging from historic renovations to ground-up new construction and everything in between. A true Midwesterner, he has lived and travelled all over the region, making his home in Iowa, Oklahoma and now, Nebraska. He has always been inspired by the Great Plains’ constant — yet ever changing — scenery.

Bruce received his master of architecture from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and completed a three-year internship at Alley Poyner Macchietto Architecture, working on university, historic renovation, multi-family, retail, office and medical clinic projects. Afterward, he worked at a general contractor/developer to help understand how the construction and development side of the business functions — a skillset that is becoming more critical in today’s industry. He then returned to the architecture community when he joined RDG Planning & Design, where he focused primarily on townhomes and senior care facilities. Since arriving at BVH, Bruce has been involved in diverse initiatives, the most recent being the La Vista Town Center project.

He is married and has two daughters. He and his wife love exploring the outdoors and seeing the amazement of nature through their children’s perspective. Additionally, Bruce has been renovating and experimenting with materials and design at his 1950’s home in Bellevue. In his spare time, he designs and fabricates small furniture pieces as an outlet for his creativity.
