Matt Van Lanen AIA
Senior Project Manager
Humble, outcomes-focused, servant team player and always inspiring others to be and do better. These are attributes I try to live each day in my role as a Project Manager. No two days are ever the same, each filled with challenges and opportunity. I enjoy leading clients through the design and construction process: communicating scope, clarifying design intent, resolving technical challenges, ensuring quality, leading construction administration and ensuring budget and schedule milestones are met. There is nothing more rewarding than building a trusting, long-term client relationship after delivering a project that functionally supports a their purpose and is, aesthetically, a great design. I also enjoy sharing advice, learning from and coaching fellow team members – sharing lessons we can apply to the next project. It takes a team and that has been an important part of my growth. My family and I are passionate Green Bay Packers fans, so when I’m not working you’ll often find us tailgating or watching America’s favorite team. My wife and I enjoy any opportunity to be active and enjoy time with our two kids, whether it’s simply being outdoors or trips to Disney!
“I have been the Alliance Laundry Systems point person on the office remodel project since the start of the project. I have had the opportunity to work with Matt now for several years. Matt has been a HUGE asset. I am very glad we selected your design firm for this project, and I am glad to have Matt’s support throughout the process.”Dave Neitzke, Manager, Ripon Engineering Test Lab
