Bryan A. Makatura, CPHC, AC

A second-generation family member in the construction business, Bryan brings unique experience and education to the forefront. “Coat-tailing” on projects from a young age—from sweeping floors to shadowing electrical and plumbing details—Bryan was formally trained as a fine trim and finish carpenter and worked his way up to construction management.

He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Construction Management from the Milwaukee School of Engineering, is a Certified Passive House Consultant with the Passive House Institute US, and is an accredited Associate Constructor with the American Institute of Constructors. Bryan is noted for bringing the Design-Build philosophy to the firm, in addition to construction efficiency and cost-analysis expertise.
