Brian Lapham
Senior Project Manager

Joined BWBR in 2010

Brian is a versatile architect who excels at detailed planning and design of diverse project types. In addition to multiple laboratory projects for colleges and universities, he has been involved in creating several innovative office, science + technology, and healthcare environments. Brian specializes in projects that have highly technical requirements and logistical challenges such as sophisticated equipment intensive spaces and multi-phased additions/renovations in older buildings.

“In eighth grade for an assignment on future careers, I interviewed three people: an architect, a pastor, and a cartoonist. As different as they sound, there is a commonality — each seeks to understand the world and make it better, while allowing a time for comic relief. While I continue to grow deeper in my faith in Jesus, and appreciate humor, I am fortunate to have found a career where it is my job to seek understanding and improve the world. As we do, humor reminds us this process is fun.”
