As Chief Architect, Todd is responsible for the management and operation of the Architectural department. He and the Architectural design team listen to the owner’s specific needs to develop preliminary building concepts and unique design ideas. The Ancon design team uses the latest computer-aided design (CAD) software to prepare drawings including site plans, floor plans, elevations, details, and 3-D computer models that help the owner to better visualize and understand the proposed design. He works in conjunction with the estimators/project managers during the pricing phase to provide alternative details and value engineering options for owner consideration. He also performs building code review and oversees the preparation of construction documents for state plan review and construction.

SELECTED CAREER ACCOMPLISHMENT AND WHY
Muessel Elementary School was completed in 2000. I was the Project Manager/Architect for this 2 story 90,000 S.F. facility.
Basney Honda was completed in 2011. I was the Project Architect for this 2 story 36,000 S.F. dealership.
Both of these projects were very challenging due to the existing facilities having to remain open on the same site during construction of the new buildings.
WHY I DO THIS
There is a sense of accomplishment to see a building design evolve and come to life from the initial design idea through construction and final completion. It is exciting to see the building used for the intended purpose and the space enjoyed by the building occupants. It also beats flippin’ burgers or delivering pizzas.
