Stephen “Andrew” Taylor graduated in May 2018 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architectural Technology. He served an internship at Frontenac Engineering Group after completion of the first year of his program, then began working at Crown C. Supply during the summer after his second year. Andrew is currently a Draftsman and Taper System Estimator @ Crown Supply where he is appreciated for his contributions.

Dave Kelly, Assistant Branch Manager at Crown Supply, explains “Andrew is very skilled in Auto-Cad and Revit, and most of his work at this location is with Auto-Cad. He is organized and understands prioritizing work on deadlines. He was able to hit the ground running after his time interning with us prior to accepting a full-time position.  Andrew understands workflow and adjusts ‘on the fly’ to changes based on customer requests. He is a dedicated worker, is on time, and works extra time as needed to fulfill needs during peak times. Andrew is willing to perform any task working toward the success of the team.”

Elizabeth Proost, Architecture instructor, tells us “Andrew Taylor was a resourceful and creative student with an eye towards detail. His unique approach to problem solving was influenced by his curiosity about the world around him. He was well-liked by his fellow students and was instrumental in the refurbishment of the significant ‘Falling Water’ model on display in the architecture department.”

Andrew speaks to the impact his Ranken education has had on his career. “I am more knowledgeable with the programs I use and understanding of the layout of the building plans,” he says. Of his favorite memories while attending Ranken, Andrew enjoyed the unique opportunities available to architecture students. He reflects, “Every couple of years, [classes] travelled overseas and were able to visit the buildings we studied in class, like the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris.” Andrew was the President of Phi Theta Kappa in 2018.
