In Mark’s 30 years of experience at BWBR, he has designed projects spanning the corporate, justice, and health care markets. Extremely detail-intensive projects have a particular appeal for him. His hands-on role with several projects filled with sophisticated technology has enabled him to develop an in-depth understanding of issues unique facilities have with emerging technologies.

Mark Ludgatis (retired)

Joined BWBR in 1991
Named Principal in 2014

“I came for a job. I stayed for the culture of camaraderie, friendship and trust, including the decades-old tradition of taking fall canoe trips to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA). Since 1991, I’ve had the privilege of being a keeper of the tradition. The trips let us connect with coworkers on a unique, personal level while enjoying one of Minnesota’s jewels. The culture that inspires this tradition also inspires our professional relationships with clients, contractors and consultants.”
