Diego Matzkin



“Design is a uniquely human experience: the process requires the application of our most human skills of visioning and communication; the results allow the human body to thrive and the human spirit to soar.”

Thanks to nearly 25 years of professional experience, Diego Matzkin is an expert in the management, production, and construction of educational, municipal, and state-funded projects of varying scales and complexities. Deeply committed to his clients, he employs a thorough, hands-on approach to tackling each stage of a project’s life cycle, including project budget and schedule management, program development, quality review of architectural/engineering design and construction documents, specialty consultant coordination, contract management and negotiation, and governmental jurisdiction approval processing. Outside of work, Diego is a member of AIA’s Orange County chapter and the Coalition for Adequate School Housing (CASH), a California-based organization that provides development and educational opportunities to school facilities in both the public and private sectors.
