TOLEDO, Ohio, October 24, 2017 – SSOE Group, a global project delivery firm for architecture, engineering, and construction management, is proud to announce the addition of three new professionals to their rapidly growing healthcare, commercial, and education business unit: Bob Siebenaller, Erin Curley, and Andy Burell.

Bob Siebenaller, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP BD+C, Senior Project Architect, recently returned to SSOE, offering leadership experience in all aspects of planning, design, and construction of healthcare and educational facilities and environments. Over the past 30+ years—20 of which have been here at SSOE—Bob has been providing creative design solutions and insightful project leadership to clients. It is his goal to consistently deliver the best possible value, while making his client’s project vision a reality. A Miami University graduate with a Bachelor of Environmental Design and a Master of Architecture, Bob is an advocate for sustainable practices, and his passion for architecture and connecting practical experience with theoretical ideas is reflected in his intuitive designs and engaging presentations. Sensible, effective programming and planning skills complement his strong technical background. In addition to his in-depth understanding of design, he is also experienced in project and operations management. He works closely with project stakeholders to facilitate cross-discipline coordination and communication throughout a project’s duration to ensure the scope, schedule, and budget meet project objectives. Bob recently served as owner’s representative in his role as Senior Project Manager for the University of Michigan-Dearborn, where he gained a fresh perspective and better understanding of the needs and pain points from the client’s angle. He realizes the importance of collaborating with clients to develop a shared vision that meets their expectations.



Erin Curley, AIA, NCARB, LEED GA, Project Architect, is a dedicated, creative, and versatile architect with a passion for design and detail. With adaptable experience in commercial design and a personal fondness for community outreach projects, Erin exhibits approachable leadership, ensuring full design development and successful completion of project construction while providing quality control for client satisfaction. She has a Bachelor of Science in Technology, Architecture, and Environmental Design from Bowling Green State University as well as a Master of Architecture in Sustainable Design from Lawrence Technological University. Additionally, she earned her Interim Master Plans Examiner certification, which allows her to review all types of construction documents for code compliance. Erin has received multiple honors for her dedication to architecture, most recently recognized with a presidential citation at the AIA Ohio Valley Region Convention where she served as Ohio Co-Chair.



Andy Burell, AIA, RA, Division Manager, brings more than 40 years of experience specializing in healthcare, commercial, educational, and industrial design. Former president and founder of The Burell Group in Birmingham, Alabama, Andy also served as Director of Architecture for the HealthSouth Planning and Design Group where he was responsible for the development of healthcare provider’s integrated medical office plaza prototype. He is a registered architect in 29 states and the District of Columbia, and is a skilled designer of outpatient surgery centers, diagnostic centers, outpatient physical therapy centers, rehabilitation hospitals, acute care facilities, and more.
