Zach Whitmire helps clients explore different design options and find cost-effective responses to their facilities challenges.
Sometimes during demolition for renovations, something unanticipated pops up. Zach enjoys taking on the challenge of adjusting the design to respond to these unforeseen conditions while sticking to the client’s budget.
For instance, demolition for a school kitchen makeover revealed an unexpected load-bearing masonry wall instead of a column. A costly option involved removing the wall and adding structural columns. Instead, Zach reworked the design at no cost to the owner . . . plus the revised design is indistinguishable from the original.
Zach volunteers on his church’s council and helps plan youth group events. Also, as housing director of his fraternity’s (Beta Sigma Psi) alumni board, he helps active members plan and draw renovations for their fraternity house.
Zach holds a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
