Ken Cleaver

Studio Lead - Higher Education / Community

The job of buildings is to improve human relations: architecture must ease them, not make them worse.

Ken’s wide-ranging experience and leadership make him an invaluable resource to project teams. He has been instrumental in a great many types and sizes of projects, ranging from massive long range master plans for school districts, university campuses and medical centers, through major additions and total building renovations for university buildings, to smaller adaptive reuse projects. His focus is working on with higher educational institutions and communities developing the relationships and insight necessary to provide innovation in learning and community environments. His depth and breadth of experience – including facility assessments of over 300 public buildings, expertise with ADAAG and sustainable building design standards as well as experience with all methods of project delivery – brings fresh insight to many of the challenges that can be encountered in planning, design and construction.
