Nicholas Scassero, CSBA
Since 2014, Nick has balanced part-time employment at BKP with full-time graduate study. His atypical path to architectural practice included time in the U.S. Navy, architectural studies at Temple University and local community colleges, and a degree in political science. Work experience in construction, drafting, and design informs his reserved, careful approach. He quietly synthesizes all parts of a design problem by listening to stakeholders and evaluating outcomes. Nick has rapid, yet thorough, analytic skills and BKP relies on him for thoughtful exploration of design challenges and efficient detailing.
In four years for the Navy, Nick maintained electrical and mechanical systems aboard naval aircraft and oversaw a staff of 12 junior personnel. He did three tours overseas and earned a commendation for outstanding performance during Operations Enduring Freedom, Southern Watch, and Iraqi Freedom.
