BACKGROUND

Mark Kohler was introduced to the architectural profession when he was a small boy, helping out the family business any way able by cleaning the “shop” or running copies of blueprints. As he grew older, Mark started drafting and learned the craft from his father in a traditional way. He continued to work part time with his father’s firm through High School and several summers during College. Mark is a Monroe High School Graduate and received his Humanities Pre-Law Degree from Michigan State in 1992. Mark joined his Father’s Architectural Firm full time in the fall of 1992. His wide range of experience coupled with a strong knowledge of Architecture and the construction industry has proved advantageous to managing several governmental, educational, manufacturing and commercial projects.

Mark currently resides in Monroe, MI with his wife Beth and his two sons Cameron and Johnny.
