Two longtime architects at GLMV Architecture, 1525 E. Douglas, are retiring from the firm.
Mike Kandt, senior vice president, chief operations officer and government studio lead, is leaving after more than 35 years with GLMV and its predecessors. He’s retiring Thursday.
“I’m going to try to remember how to play golf again and see if my fishing pole still works and trying to keep up with my ‘honey do’ projects,” Kandt said.
His duties will be filled primarily by GLMV project manager Kerry Hunt.
Kandt said some of the highlights of his time at GLMV were designing military projects.
“I feel best about designing facilities that have really provided great value and design for not only the government but the soldiers who are going to use the facilities, too,” Kandt said.
David Clark, space planning and interior architectural design, was with GLMV and its predecessors for more than 20 years. He retired recently.
Clark declined to comment for this story.
His more recent projects included work for Intrust Bank and the alumni center at K-State, said Bill Livingston, GLMV chairman.
“We’re very happy for them as they enter a new phase of their life,” Livingston said. “They’re great people and we think the world of them.”
