Kurt Swensson, Ph.D, PE, LEED AP
Joined Wallace Design Collective in 2022
I get up in the morning with the goal of adding value to any team or project. I do this by looking for opportunities to improve a design or process and by providing solutions to challenges which arise in the course of any project. Joining Wallace Design Collective will allow me and KSi to better serve our clients, peers, network partners, and community with a stronger firm, providing more services, with broader expertise, and experience to apply to any project.
