Project Architect

Tim joined BVH in June of 2020. As a Nebraska native Tim grew up in a small town learning to appreciate nature and community health. He is an alumni of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, College of Architecture earning his Master’s degree in 2001. 

His purpose and passion for high performance, design simulation, and health and wellness expertise imbues his work. Every building has an impact on our planet and to minimize this it is important to measure, mitigate, and share efforts. In addition, buildings have profound impacts on people and communities, nurturing everyone’s wellbeing. Because we all live on one planet, it is his belief that purposeful architecture has a symbiotic relationship with place and people.

Outside of work, Tim is a spouse, father, runner, board game player and enjoys hiking and family bike rides. He has read many books by authors whose first name is Terry.
