Lyn has been with Burt Hill/Pollock Krieg since 1973. In his role as managing principal, he is responsible for making certain each client receives the necessary talent, manpower and resources of the firm to complete their project to their highest satisfaction.
Having led numerous landmark commercial projects in his almost 40 years as an architect, Lyn is well acquainted with the myriad of commercial project types and the people who inhabit them. “Commercial spaces are all about people. These environments have to be comfortable and functional for both staff and visitors,” says Pollock. “They also have to reflect the individual personality of the business, both inside the building and out.” Lyn excels at incorporating this knowledge into a project that also delivers within agreed-upon time frames and budgets.
With more than 30 years in healthcare design, Lyn has a deep understanding of both the technical and the human aspects of this specialized and complex project type. He is also sensitive to the desire of every client to provide a comfortable and healing environment for their patients. Due to his long and varied experience in life care and healthcare design, he is able to present options to clients that they may not have previously considered. Says Pollock, “Every healthcare project has its own complex set of criteria. The challenge--and reward--lies in incorporating the latest technology and design methodology into a safe, healing and functional environment for patients and staff alike.”
Lyn is highly adept at listening to the client and uncovering exactly what their goals are, and then providing solutions that meet those goals, all while maintaining the efficiency and budget requirements so mandatory in educational projects. Because every institution has its own culture, Lyn takes the necessary steps to define that culture and ensure it shapes every decision made during the design process. “Each educational facility must provide an exciting and stimulating environment for learning, no matter what level,” says Pollock. “It must be a place where students and educators want to be; a place where they feel challenged, supported and safe.”
