DENVER, Colorado—Global architecture and design firm Perkins&Will announced today that Andy Barnard of the Denver studio is retiring.
The announcement follows previous leadership changes the studio underwent in January and marks a successful career for Barnard, who worked with the practice for 33 years and was an integral part of the Sink Combs Dethlefs merger with Perkins&Will in 2017. Barnard served as president of Sink Combs Dethlefs since 2009 and became managing director of Perkins&Will’s Denver studio immediately following the merger.
Barnard retires with a portfolio of exceptional design solutions with an emphasis on stewardship of resources for the firm, the client, and the environment. His colleagues fondly reflect on their time with him in the studio.
“I have spent the last three decades working with Andy.” says marketing director and principal Jenny Stephens, “He’s been a great leader, partner, and friend to me and many of us in Denver. While we will miss his talent, compassion and sense of humor in the office, we’re excited to celebrate this important milestone with him. He’s earned it!”
Here are a few of the projects Barnard has led over the years:
