Chicago Build

Katie Thigpen, LEED Green Associate - Bernardon

Emerging into the Chicago building industry, Kathryn brings several years of architectural design experience ranging from commercial, residential, and transportation design. Since joining Bernardon in April 2022, she now has a focus on multifamily residential projects. Originally from the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area, Kathryn completed her Bachelor of Architecture degree from Drexel University in 2018. During her time in school, she participated in several design competitions such as the Drexel Tiny House, which was a construction project focused on micro-unit dwellings and urban farming, as well as an architectural research thesis titled, “Strung Out: A Philadelphia Neighborhood in the Grips an Epidemic,” which brought harm reduction strategies and local amenities to a neglected urban neighborhood struggling to cope with the Opioid Crisis. Since completing her degree, Kathryn has spent time traveling around the world participating in volunteer/exchange programs and pursuing hobbies of hers, such as snowboarding, where she spent two winters working as a Ski Lift Operator in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Her love of the outdoors and desire to protect the planet have expanded into her professional practice, where she received her LEED Green Associate credential in February of 2022.
