At Neumann Monson we understand everyone impacts the world through their actions and interactions. We use architecture as a tool to ensure that impact is positive and tangible. As we balance the firm’s growth, we are focusing on converting the talent and drive into measurable impact for our clients, partners, and communities. We are continually and systematically improving every partnership we have. Client experience is our primary corporate objective and we are investing the effort to get it right. That means we’re taking care with every relationship (internal and external) to make sure we’re doing everything possible to make each connection a shared success.
What do you do in your spare time?
A recent hobby of mine (and my wife's) has been to rescue aging homes by renovating them into near NetZero energy, examples of good design. We've accomplished this at 323 and 328 Koser Avenue in University Heights, Iowa thus far. Our goal is push the housing market in this direction.
What excites you most about Neumann Monson?
Our potential! When we see Neumann Monson’s future, we see more than thoughtful and relevant design solutions. We see productive connections between people working together to create thriving communities. We see the compelling environments where people want to gather, share ideas, and grow. Those results happen by applying relentless drive, skills, and proven processes toward solving complex problems with simple solutions. The single biggest opportunity for us is to partner with growth-oriented leaders who want to create vibrant connections.
What makes Iowa unique?
Centered square in the middle of the United States, we are about as real and authentic as it gets. If you leverage that mindset toward design, the result is real and authentic architecture.
