Andy Poticha  – Principal

Andy knew he wanted to become an architect when he was just 8 years old. He was able to direct that passion for the industry through the creation of Design Construction Concepts in 1991. Over the last two decades, Andy has enjoyed working on the variety of projects that the company has been commissioned to complete. Most importantly, he has enjoyed the strong relationships he has developed along the way, many of which have turned into life-long friendships. Along with his partners and team members, Andy has guided the direction and expansion of Design Construction Concepts. In recent years, Andy has devoted his personal time and efforts to several important charitable causes and organizations.
