Graduate Colloquium

“Architecture Career Path in Construction” Presentation by Larry Stone, Findorff, Quality Lead
Sauron Sanchez, Findorff, Virtual Construction Specialist – Animator


During the time of his undergraduate courses at Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning, Stone worked as a carpenter for local Milwaukee contractors that were building near the University. Upon graduating with his Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies in 1999, Stone was hired by a leading Design/Build contractor in Madison WI. There Stone worked as an architectural technician and moved his way up to a Lead Project Architect managing the production of construction documents for various commercial projects in the greater Madison area. Eventually Stone became licensed practicing for about 12 years while getting out to the field as much as possible to see the documents come to life. Because he had a passion for the construction side of the Design/Build model, Stone moved out of drawing production and development and became focused on the construction administration side of the company. This allowed Stone to focus on the details, materials & methods and science of building systems. Stone was soon hired by a predominant General Contractor in Madison that helped define this new career as a professional in construction Quality and Building Sciences. Stone now leads the Quality Program for J.H. Findorff & Son Inc. in Madison WI helping support 3 company offices and supporting project teams with Quality operations throughout the lifecycle of the project.
