Mike Yopp

AIA, NCARB
Senior Project Manager

Mike is an NCARB-certified architect with over 20 years of experience with large, technologically complex public projects. In addition to his long history as a consulting architect, he has also worked for a design-build entity and as an owner’s representative on major public construction projects.

Most recently, Mike has been responsible for an $82 M project that involves demolition, renovation, and new construction of training facilities for the Navy SEALS Basic Training Command at the Naval Amphibious Base Coronado. The phasing of this project is extremely complicated because of the need to minimize disruption of the SEALS’ on-going service mission at the base, and because of the need to coordinate the new construction with the relocation of assets at NAB to the new Coastal Campus currently under development.

Prior assignments involving the development of new public facilities on sites of existing government operations include his role as Co-Project Manager for the 400,000 SF design-build reconstruction of the Pentagon area destroyed in the 9/11 attacks. In this role, he coordinated multiple design-build packages, provided daily on-site construction coordination, and coordinated site preparation and construction of facilities for the dedication ceremony of Phase I on September 11, 2002, which was attended by the former President of the United States.
