Sarah co-authored an article on women in architecture and was featured in the AIA’s “Women in Architecture” exhibit in Chicago. She is LEED AP BD+C accredited.

Sarah is as passionate about her family as she is about her work.

When she’s not working, she enjoys anything that means spending time with her large family. Her current favorite hobbies include golfing with her daughter and spectating at her kids’ many athletic events. For a little needed quiet time she also enjoys gardening and walking outdoors.


Lisa Dailey

Lisa keeps daily operations at Kingscott running smoothly and efficiently. She’s been with us for 35 years and it’s safe to say, there’s no one better suited to keeping our house in order. Lisa started out in reception, moved into accounting and now works on production and specs. In addition to overseeing daily operations, she can run a mean general construction bid. Lisa likes the lively atmosphere and the diverse people at Kingscott.

Lisa’s husband got her into bow hunting in her 30s, and she’s been hooked ever since. Now an accomplished bow hunter, Lisa takes down game so big she needs help hauling her kill out of the woods. Not only does she shoot record-breakers, she also grows them. She attributes the success of her 7 ft. tomato plants to a particular variety and some well-guarded secrets. Another little known fact about Lisa is that her great-great grandfather graduated in the first class of Civil Engineers in 1862 from MSU. He wrote a textbook on land surveying that was used in colleges until 1957.


Karol Bartlam

Completing construction documents to produce awesome buildings is what drives Karol Bartlam. She’s also adept at coordinating her team members to complete tasks in a timely manner. She loves detail and accuracy and feels she was destined to be in the architectural profession. Her parents bought her first drafting table when she was in 5th grade; she took drafting in high school and graduated with an associate’s degree in drafting. From coordinating with consultants, clients and construction managers to double-checking codes, Karol is a vital member of our architecture team.

While architectural drafting is only one of her favorite kinds of draft, her other favorite draft is Atwater Vanilla Java Porter. Outside of drafting and craft beer tasting, Karol enjoys camping and spending time with her family and her pups, Memphis & Boop.

His nearly 30 years experience on projects big and small gives him the expertise to know what steps must be taken and how to keep the communication lines open to get a job done.

Karl has long been interested in art, and architecture drew him. He saw it as a practical application of arts to the real world. Karl got his architecture and structural engineering training at Technical Institute of Cluj in Romania. Then in 1987 he immigrated to the United States and became an American citizen in 1993.

Today, when the nice weather hits you are likely to find Karl outside hiking or walking the beach. He and his wife try to take an American and a European vacation each year.

Bright, sunny and reliable are all accurate ways to describe Josie Neff. Josie graduated with a degree in Interior Design from Western Michigan University.
