Back to Our People

Michael Ohar, PE, CDT, LEED AP


Today’s students are tomorrow’s future. I never lose sight of that reality as I work with K12 districts. We need to create design opportunities that solve our client’s challenges, but at the end of the day, we have to make sure our work empowers students and has an impact on the outcome of their education.

Informed by a unique perspective that blends both engineering and architectural design, Michael leads our Western New York K12 Practice. Deeply understanding of the challenges today’s school districts face, Michael focuses on helping them address challenges and seize opportunities through strategy, renovation, capital planning and new design. He is focused on helping K12 districts rethink and reshape learning spaces where students and staff can thrive.
