Hombsch is vice president and principal, HGA Architects and Engineers, Milwaukee. With a leadership background in electrical engineering and infrastructure, he is particularly attuned to resolving complex building systems and construction processes. His comprehensive understanding of building systems, building operations, energy efficiency, and the construction process guides the project team to deliver exceptional design solutions.
For a consumer food group’s very mixed-space campus, HGA’s careful outdoor air strategy got support from smart boiler, chiller, and lighting design to create performance tailored for the client while comfortably exceeding LEED®and ASHRAE 90.1 requirements.
