TK Voice – Bill Frush, Structural Director

After high school graduation, like most people, I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to do. However, I did have an interest in residential construction, so I began an architectural construction program at a community college. The very first college course I had was drafting. I fell in love with it immediately.

Less than a year later, I was 19 and working for an architect in his budding practice. Under his mentorship and through his generosity, over the next five years, the foundations were laid upon which everything I know today was built.

Almost 30 years later, I now work as the Structural Director for TK Design. Have you ever heard someone talk about the “bones” of a house? The bones are exactly what I design: every column, header, beam, and structural system that holds a house up. Keeping in mind our focus on lean design and making our plans as trade friendly as possible, one of my primary goals is to leave no grey areas at all. When I am finished with a set of drawings, there should be no questions about any step of construction which helps ensure design integrity and eliminate confusion and/or delays during construction
