John Kisner

  • Principal
  • Griffin, Sugar Hill

John first worked for PBK as his first job after graduate school, and he returned to join PBK in Georgia as the Higher Education Regional Manager. He has more than 30 years of professional experience in programming, planning, design, and construction management for a broad range of institutional projects, with specific expertise in educational projects and existing buildings. From an early age, John wished to be an architect and began his first architecture job while in high school. International travel created a love for urban design, and a longstanding interest in sustainability triggered his early LEED accreditation. His interest in history led to work in preservation, where John respects the cultural significance of our older buildings and will strive to make the most of the inherent value in existing structures. John’s keenest interest is optimizing the specific combination of scope, quality, budget, and vision for each client. He enjoys leading teams with high levels of expertise for the successful delivery of challenging projects.
