Thomas J. Sinke

Senior Architect / Shareholder

STATEMENT OF PASSION: Tom loves to “figure things out”, whether it’s resolving a tricky construction detail, puzzling over how an old building was built and how to modify it, figuring out how to improve the efficiency of a floor plan, or working through a difficult code issue. Ultimately, most architectural problems are puzzles and finding the right solution is the challenge. That’s what Tom loves to do.
