Mr. Figueroa specializes in project management of public and private projects.

This entails coordination of the initial programming of clients’ needs and the project schedule, as well as continuous client contact to oversee that all requirements are met from the construction documents through project completion. Mr. Figueroa will remain personally involved from the date of the interview through contractual negotiations, programming, design, contract award, construction, and warranty period. Mr. Figueroa is a former student of retired partners Zeb Rike, AIA, and Dan Ogden, AIA, in the 1974 Pan American University Pre-Architecture Program. After graduating in 1977 from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Design and with 8 months of experience in architecture, he joined Rike Ogden Architects in 1978 and again in 1981 after completing the Texas A&M University Master's Program in Architecture.
