About Ryan

Ryan Kohl, RRC, Senior Consultant, is a firm believer in the value of early project engagement in the development of constructable, resilient, and easily maintained structures. Through his extensive design, investigative, and construction experience, Ryan helps guide architects and contractors with product selections, development of exterior enclosure assemblies, and identifies and provides solutions to difficult details and assembly transitions.

Though technical expertise is vital to his role, Ryan excels in the personal aspects of building enclosure consulting, such as workshopping with designers to achieve aesthetic goals while being able to develop clear, concise, and accurate bidding documents. During construction, Ryan works with architects, contractors, and installers to help reconcile cross-trade detailing sequencing, mitigate unforeseen detailing conflicts, identify material incompatibilities, and provide on-site observations and testing.

Prior to joining Lerch Bates, Ryan worked as a Building Science and Quality Control Project Manager for a design/build developer for two years, and for 14 years prior to that, as an enclosure consultant.
