Timothy Blatner, CSI, CDT, a licensed architect for over 30 years with nearly four decades of experience, serves the office as Technical Director. Tim is responsible for document quality management, production and specification knowledge resources, maintaining and sharing knowledge of new and evolving construction materials, continuing education programming, and mentoring staff with project documentation and construction phase contract administration.

His work history covers a broad range of project types including churches, an exhibition hall conference center, dining halls, fitness and recreation centers, light-industrial production and storage facilities, multi-family housing (townhomes to high-rises), offices, parking structures, schools (elementary to college level), and urban infrastructure (bridges/viaducts, plazas, and streetscapes).
