1987 - PR         TECHNE KRAFT, d/b/a … an architectural and interiors studio

                          Role: Architect - Designer - Engineering - CA -- Builder - Business

                          To explore historical meaning, context, materials, and building form, all

                          the while, incorporating the client’s needs, budget, and an Integrated-                                                engineering basis to create places with interesting space and “well”


                          … firmly on its way to being the third reliever airport for Chicago O’Hara

                          is Gary-Chicago Airport. Techne Kraft has completed the architectural

                          and engineering design services for several projects over the last 15-

                          years, including in 2014 a $3,400,000 FBO & Tenant Hangar for B.

                          Coleman Aviation; in 2006 the $1.6 million Administration Office and

                          Snow Removal Equipment additions to the existing SRE building; in

                          2011 the design for a new $1.3 million electrical vault; and in 1999 the

                          $9,000,000 CM-delivered Hangar (with rapid open hangar doors).

                          … conceptual design in 2012, an Urban Infill project for the Swatara Area

                          of Hershey, PA. The challenge was to develop a small lot and existing

                          one-story studio affected by zoning and high price-per-foot. With no

                          allowable building area remaining it became a vertical urban tower,

                          similar to late-medieval Europe in Italy. It created a first floor studio, a

                          second floor living space, and a third floor bedroom, with roof access.

                          Fitting, as Hershey was known for its Italian immigrant population and

                          iconic imagery.

                          … finished in the spring of 2007, Freeman Field’s New GA Terminal is

                          more than an administration center, a public meeting space, and a waystation

                          for passengers and pilots. Its imagery pays tribute to the historic

                          past of this airport, which was an advanced pilot training station during

                          WWII. With a tight budget of $731,000, and though the restaurant space

                          was not completed, this facility is probably one of my favorite

                          accomplishments in idea and function.
