As a project manager, specification writer, construction administrator, and design team member at Kodet, Teri Nagel is involved in all aspects of projects. She understands the coordination required to provide a strong set of documents that integrate the complete set of detail needed for complex areas. This includes her work with clients to layout kitchens, science labs, performance areas, and other detailed spaces efficiently and to meet programs.
Teri also regularly meets with client users to understand how a facility will be used and what needs varying groups will place upon the facility. She then works to coordinate these wants and needs into a building program and then into a building layout. Collaborating with the end users helps to guide the design for individualized designs that create successful buildings.
