Jeremy Christopherson

Assoc. AIA, LEED AP

Architectural Designer & Vice President of Business Development

Jeremy Christopherson graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a Master of Architecture degree, after earning a Bachelor of Arts & Science degree from UNL. Jeremy has spent the past 16 years with RSA developing a wide variety of projects ranging from small $200,000 remodel projects to large 14 million dollar schools and civic projects. His passion to create meaningful architecture for each client and community guides his process through detailed exploration of each individual project’s objectives and thoughtful development of various potential solutions to best realize those objectives. He believes that every client deserves meaningful architecture that creates a sense of place, embodies the culture and core

values of the client, and is sensitive to specific project, site, and community constraints. In order to accomplish that goal he believes communication of objectives and ideas must be clearly shared between the designer and project stakeholders whether it be one individual or a large committee. He takes pride in his ability to interpret his client’s objectives and translate them into a unique, beautiful, and economical environment that everyone can be proud of for years to come.
