Sandberg-Kessler Architecture expands staff

JAMESTOWN – Sand-berg Kessler Architecture, P.C. has recently hired Troy E. Eklum as an intern architect. A Falconer native, Eklum received a bachelor of architecture degree from Kent State. He gained practical experience with a Lakewood, Ohio, architectural firm before assuming his position at Sandberg Kessler.

He is enrolled in the AIA Intern Development Pro-gram, a structured, multi-year transition from architectural student to licensed professional. Eklum was the 2010 AND Magazine winner for his student design of a university library addition in Florence, Italy. He currently resides near Falconer where he enjoys hiking, camping and video game programming.

Ronald Kessler, a principal with the firm went on to say, “Hiring Troy is consistent with our goal of taking full advantage of Revit Building Information Mod-eling. Its three-dimensional capabilities help our designers convey concepts visually to our clients on both large and small projects.”

Sandberg Kessler Archi-tecture was organized in 1991 and is led by architects Steve Sandberg and Ron Kessler.

The firm has a significant portfolio of work throughout western New York and Northwestern Pennsylva-nia.

Having recently completed major projects for Dun-kirk City Schools and Broc-ton Central School, the firm is a comprehensive design firm for both public and private sector clients.
