Michael W. Behm
Mike’s 36 years of architecture, engineering and construction experience spans a diverse mix of projects in the municipal, recreation, higher education, aviation, K-12, federal and non-profit sectors. An architect and a contractor, he understands the inseparable nature of design and construction. To him, the most successful projects are those where design and construction professionals work in close partnership and the effort is rooted in trust and teamwork among the owner, architect and contractor. The overall success of a project relies heavily on the team’s understanding of the project constraints, as well as its opportunities. Great projects provide innovative solutions that not only inspire, but also are functionally responsive, technologically sound and fiscally responsible. This philosophy has positioned him as a recognized leader on design-build and alternative project delivery systems. Mike’s understanding of a multitude of project types, budgets and delivery systems strengthens his belief that integrating design and construction teams can offer tremendous benefits to many clients, designers and builders.
