Jennifer Ukura
Senior Project Architect

Joined BWBR in 2015

Jennifer focuses on healthcare projects of all types and sizes, from new rural hospitals and clinics to renovations and infrastructure upgrades at major urban Level I trauma centers. She is well-versed in complex healthcare building codes, equipment needs, and other requirements, as well as the design elements to create durable and welcoming facilities. She works with clients to design their spaces while sharing responsibility for putting the building together technically, including how it performs. Jennifer is inspired to use her skills to design spaces that address problems and provide solutions for the people who use them.

“Since I was two years old, my family has gone to our cabin in Northwest Wisconsin nearly every weekend during the summer. I recently helped my parents design a new garage with a bunk house above to accommodate our many visitors. While designing the garage was a simple project, it allowed me to give back to my parents a few of the things that they have given to me. I think architecture is like that, though; the act of designing may be easy for me, but being able to use my skills to give people a building that solves their problems is the reason I love what I do.”
