Bob Drake’s experience as a designer, director of construction, and owner’s representative have allowed him to encounter architecture from multiple points of view. Drawing on his comprehensive understanding of the construction process, Bob is adept at grasping the motivations of all participants and focusing parties on the joint goals of quality, budget and schedule. His practice is guided by a belief that data gathering should always precede design, and he strives to provide clients, consultants, and team members with support based on critical analysis. Whether leading the firm’s construction administration or mentoring young architects, Bob’s love of craft and detail are central to his work.
Bob completed New York University’s Construction Administration program, and holds a Bachelor of Architecture from New York Institute of Technology and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from St. Lawrence University.
