Aaron Huisman


I'm driven to help our clients create spaces that make life better for students. When you create a successful building or space, you can feel it in the campus' energy, see it in students smiles, and it echoes in campus leadership feedback. Those are incredibly rewarding experiences.

Education is a team sport for the Huisman family. With Aaron a key leader in our St. Louis higher education group, his wife an educator at Fontbonne University, and four children in various grade levels…conversations around the dinner table usually focus on who learned what today, the future of learning, and everything in between.

It’s been that way for a while now too, as Aaron has more than 20 years’ experience helping colleges and universities bring dynamic recreation, sports, student life and academic spaces to life. He’s built a proven record of guiding projects from concept through construction with notable institutions like Saint Louis University, Missouri State, University of Southern Indiana, and Washington University in St. Louis to name just a few. He’s also been part of successful teams working on healthcare and science projects, too.
