Ken Kirkpatrick, LEED AP

Project Coordinator

Ken has worked on projects varied in scale and project type. He was born and raised in small-town Nebraska, graduating high school from Wood River. He received his Master of Architecture from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

Ken’s interest in architecture came at a young age where woodworking and 4-H fueled a desire to build things with his hands. For him, creating something from scratch or from a line on a paper is deeply satisfying. This idea translates into designing or improving the built environment for users and occupants of their space.

Ken enjoys an active lifestyle, spending a lot of time outdoors, including running, biking, kayaking, camping, hiking, hunting and fishing. Married to his high school sweetheart, he and his wife have two young girls to keep them busy, and they are constantly on the go. Ken also has a passion for woodworking and gardening.
