Role at UBG: Ryan meets with our clients to review projects and feasibility studies to gain an understanding of the scope of work a client wishes to complete. During the initial design development, he takes the clients design intent and works to create various design options and produce detailed plans and elevations. When the project has moved forward to the construction document phase, his involvement with the client continues with the selections process of cabinetry, countertops, fixtures, stone/tile, etc. Lastly, Ryan works with our architectural team to produce the detailed construction documents and coordinate with our project management team during the construction phase to ensure that the architectural vision is executed properly.
Background: Originally from Colorado, Ryan moved to Charlotte with his family at age 10. He currently resides in Charlotte with his wife Season, and their two beautiful children, Jackson and Georgia. Ryan’s love for design started at an early age when he would draw and design cars. He knew he wanted to get into the design world in high school and his passion, specifically for residential design, took hold when he was looking at design colleges to attend. Ryan has enjoyed playing soccer ever since he was young, and he continues that passion today with his son. He also enjoys the quality time he spends with his family and being outdoors.
I can't recall an experience that has been more positive from start to finish than my experience with Urban Building Group.
