MKM Principal Matthew Sparling, AIA, LEED AP, was recently awarded the AIA Indiana Young Architect Award during the 2020 AIA Indiana Convention in Indianapolis. The Young Architect award was created to recognize proficiency and exceptional accomplishments in, and contributions to, the profession by a licensed architect who has been a member in good standing of AIA Indiana and is 40 years or younger.
Sparling is skilled in finding solutions for complicated problems. He received the award in part for his work on developing design solutions to combat the spread of COVID-19. He quickly reacted to work with many of MKM’s clients to make needed modifications to their facilities to prepare for the initial surge of pandemic patients. His swift actions provided facilities with actionable solutions that carried into their ongoing management of COVID-19.
As a principal, Sparling has been instrumental in helping MKM grow. With an extensive background in managing complex healthcare projects for large institutional clients, he has a reputation for successfully planning, designing and executing large-scale healthcare projects throughout Indiana.
