Rod Collier, AIA, NCARB


Rod Collier and Todd Rottmann met at a lunchtime meeting in 2008.  Despite the fact that Rod freaked Todd out by wearing a suit and tie, the pair hit it off.  Within a few short months, Rod had joined Rottmann Architects as a consultant.  Within a year, Todd and Rod both made the decision to combine their strengths into one dynamic duo.
