Architecture firm continues rapid growth

This time last year, Evanston-based Myefski Architects was a 13-person outfit with aspirations for larger projects and a more diverse workload. Now, with the addition of its three newest employees it's grown to a staff of 21.

“I started this company 21 years ago with the hope that I would see this kind of portfolio growth down the road,” said President and Principal John Myefski. “Every individual on our staff contributes to the overall success of our firm. Every new hire we gain makes us that much stronger.”

Camille Bivens joined the firm as an assistant project manager. Myefski says that, with a belief that every detail matters, she's become an essential part of the team.

Architectural intern Emily Mueller brings vast knowledge of design and development to the firm's Marquette, Michigan, location, he says, and Kristin Sandoval bring impeccable organizational skills to her job as office administrator.

The firm's recent project in Evanston include the expansion of The Merion senior living community in downtown Evanston, a 47-unit planned development on Central Street and a 16-unit condo conversion of an industrial building on South Boulevard.
