The Samuels Group is proud to announce that Henry Kropp, AIA successfully completed his Architectural Registration Exam (ARE), adding another architect to the staff. The road to becoming a licensed architect is an extensive process of experience hours, exams, and state documentation. The ARE is administered by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and is designed to evaluate various facets of architectural practice such as practice management, project management, planning, design, and development.
“Henry is a talented designer,” says Samuels Group Director of Design and Architect, Dan Roarty, “Architecture is more than design. Henry’s knowledge of practical design and construction standards, expectations, trends, and fundamental information is exceptional. He has mastered industry software programs for Computer Aided Design and Rendering. Henry has touched every step of the design process, from initial meetings to schematic design to Construction Documents, Bidding, and Construction Administration all the way through the final punch list and project closeout.”
“…it is a confirmation that I know what I am doing and that all the hard work, extra time over the years has paid off,” says Kropp, “I don’t plan on letting that title change anything about how I do what I do though.”
The Samuels Group was founded on a vision for growth in the Midwest commercial construction industry with a fresh approach rooted in innovation. Key team members such as Kropp are an integral part of the team to achieve that founding vision.
