Vice President and Principal
Eric Zabilka loves problem-solving; that’s why he thrives on technically complex projects that present him with interesting design challenges. For example, for the New Science Building at Eastern Kentucky University, Eric was charged with bringing together multiple departments that were previously scattered across the campus. The combination of program elements - including wet and dry labs, classrooms, common areas, and outdoor learning environments - gave Eric the opportunity to get his hands dirty with the technical complexity of the building, and utilize his inclusive design process to achieve the needs and vision of a wide array of user groups.
Eric is a LEED Accredited Professional, a Certified Interior Designer, a Member of the Construction Specifications Institute, and a member of the American Institute of Architects East Kentucky Chapter. He has presented to national groups such as the Society for College and University Planning and has received multiple design awards for his work. A resident of Wilmore, Kentucky, Eric serves on the Wilmore Development Board and the Planning Commission.
