AIA Colorado Profiles Tim Barr

AIA Colorado has published a profile Q+A with Tim Barr, our Denver Office Leader.

Passionate about building teams and driving results, Tim spends his days nurturing our client relationships across the Mountain States region, mentoring staff, strengthening company culture and creating new partnerships.

A Colorado native, Tim has spent his entire career leading business development for design and construction firms and is deeply committed to helping organizations imagine and execute bold new futures.

The full AIA Colorado interview is available online. Here’s an excerpt:

What do you think are the largest opportunities for architects in Colorado right now?
The diversity in our economy allows the profession to thrive in ways that it did not 20 years ago. The firms that focus on their strengths and provide great value will continue to grow here.

Where do you see the profession going in the future?
There will be more automation, more modularization of systems, and more forward thinking innovations in terms of ideas and building systems. Think about it, 3D printed buildings are a reality now. That’s not the future, that’s right now – so, who knows what else the future will bring.

What do you like to do outside of work and service?
I have a wonderful family and an 8-year-old son. I am an accomplished ultrarunner (I have finished the Leadville 100 run twice now) and love to snowboard. I’m learning to play guitar as well which has been a fun new hobby.
