Andrew Atkins

Project Manager



Andrew has 12 years of experience in the structural design of commercial buildings, including award-winning educational, corporate, healthcare and historic preservation projects. His past work includes everything from large replacement hospitals in high seismic zones to small additions and retrofits of existing structures, as well as nonbuilding structures. Andrew is familiar with all structural systems, particularly reinforced concrete and composite steel framing.

Andrew attributes his love of historic preservation to his time spent on the $300 million Restoration and Rehabilitation Project of the Minnesota State Capitol; a several-year effort that wrapped up in 2017. He loved the challenge and problem-solving required working on such an iconic structure.

In his free time, Andrew enjoys playing with his two daughters, exploring the outdoors and local breweries with his wife, photography and woodworking.
