Lucian serves as Director of Architecture for MSSA-PBK in Griffin, Georgia.
Lucian’s first foray into the construction industry was in the early 1980s when he built a house for himself and his wife. He then worked as a carpenter for several years, building contract homes with his brother. In 1991, combining his interests in art and construction, he returned to school to study architecture, graduating from Georgia Tech (‘95, Master of Architecture). He has more than 41 years of experience in the construction industry, including over 27 years in the field of architecture.
Lucian joined MSSA in 1995, providing design and project management for educational facilities and private sector projects. In 2009, Mr. Tatum spearheaded MSSA’s transition from 2D design and documentation into Building Information Modeling (BIM), and he continues to serve as the office’s BIM manager. He particularly enjoys using the 3D capabilities of BIM to allow clients to see exactly what their projects will look like, from the conceptual level to final documentation. Mr. Tatum also has expertise in construction cost estimating and value engineering.
