People Creating Places

Introducing Schemmer's new blog about our professionals, People Creating Places. At Schemmer, our people are architects, engineers, and construction field services specialists. They are creating construction plans and oversite of buildings, roadways, bridges, sewers, and utilities, all with the goal of creating a sense of place in the built environment.

The word place is used to describe a specific location, such as a place on a map, a physical environment, a building or locality of special significance, or a particular region or location.

Schemmer's New Blog About Our Professionals

We felt People Creating Places was a good definition of who we are and what we do. We hope you enjoy finding out more about the people of Schemmer and the places we create.

Who or what inspired you to pursue the career you have today?

"I remember being in high school, I was a very good drawer. I thought I was a creative person. At the same time, I thought I was a fairly practical person. I thought with the creativity and practicality, I thought architecture would be a good fit for those two sort of talent sets."
