Jeffrey Helman, AIA, President of the firm, holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design degree from Ball State University, College of Architecture and Planning. He is a member in good standing with the AIA (American Institute of Architects) and the NCARB (National Council of Registration Boards.) He is a fully certified and registered architect in both Indiana and Michigan.
Jeff’s role in the firm since its inception has always been one of client interaction and the initial needs assessment process. His expertise and discernment in being able to identify and articulate the challenge each project presents, and the subsequent program creation, is only one primary facet of his wide ranging contribution. He has always assumed the role of “creative director,” on every project, having a strong hand in the development and trajectory of the process from beginning to completion.
Outside the office, his personal pursuits are equally diverse, ranging from a love of daily fitness, to chasing after his five young grandchildren. When he and his artist wife Jamie are not with the kids, you may find Jeff in his woodshop making the next masterpiece for Jamie to paint, or in his music studio playing his Fender Stratocaster with the local rock band Bucky and the Lip Rippers.
