The experience of the firm doesn’t matter much if the people with that experience are not actively involved in the projects.

That is why SKB organizes its business model so that partners and principals can contribute heavily to their projects, large or small. The partners of SKB – Mark Baughman, Ruth Oczkowski, and Mark Guild – share the administrative tasks of the firm to allow them to devote the majority of their time to project work. Every project has at least one partner actively participating in it, and they are often directly involved in managing or designing the project. Often two partners are assigned to a project so that both can apply their specialized experience.

SKB’s experienced partners and principals give clients the tempered professional advice of a fellow business owner, and they provide strong leadership for the design teams. Nearly all of the partners and principals bring between 25 to 40 years of experience to their projects.
