Facility Design Manager
Nikolas has shaped his architectural background to be diverse in project location, design processes, and technical application – a direct reflection of his undergraduate education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and his graduate studies at the University of Cincinnati. His practice experience also includes facility condition assessments, facility/space programming, and environment-behavior research. As a leader through his diverse array of work, Nikolas has coordinated and managed projects for many Maryland-based public sector and transportation agencies. He has contributed to such high-profile projects & environments as the Purple Line MD Light Rail, BWI Airport, and the Dulles Corridor Metrorail (Silver Line). As a facility design project leader with HDR’s Vehicle O&M Facilities Design group, Nikolas brings a unique focus on infrastructure design and analysis, creating functional, sustainable, and efficient facility complexes nationally, currently on multimodal projects for Virginia Railway Express, New Jersey Transit, and Coast RTA in Myrtle Beach.
