This Friday, we’re appreciating and recognizing our team member Bradley Polan!

Before Brad joined us here at COBU, he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Judson University in Elgin, IL in 2021. He has plans to return to Judson to complete his Master’s degree to continue on his path to becoming licensed.

During his nearly 2 years at COBU, he has worked on a variety of projects including townhomes, single-family residences, and local commercial renovations. Coming from a background in remodeling, Brad can apply his skills and knowledge taken from the field to his work in the office. He is also proficient in 3D modeling and rendering.

Outside the office, Brad enjoys being active outdoors and can be found hiking, biking, and skateboarding. He also frequently attends concerts and festivals, electronic dance music being the genre of choice. Brad is growing his talents outside of architecture by taking up photography, drawing, and novice wood working – a true jack of many trades!

When not out exploring new places and hobbies, Brad enjoys spending time at home with his cats Clyde, Pepperoncini, and Ziggy.
