Division of Architecture and Engineering

John Evans, Division Manager

The responsibility of the Division of Architecture and Engineering is the execution of the department's Capital Construction Program. This execution includes liaison with the Capital Development Board, and project review and management. The formation of the DNR has expanded the role of the Division of Architecture and Engineering, as our staff begin to provide project liaison and management to our larger agency on future appropriated projects. In addition to standard contracted projects, the Division also manages the Heavy Equipment Crew, conducts in-house design, and provides technical assistance through our staff architects and engineers.


  • Oversee the construction of DNR Capital Projects through direct project management, liaison with the Capital Development Board, or other State and Federal agencies.
  • Review and evaluate plans and specifications for proposed construction projects at Department facilities, and recommend changes to insure compliance with building codes, laws and other requirements.
  • Develop plans and specifications for projects designed in-house.
  • Provide technical assistance to other DNR divisions on engineering and architectural matters.
  • Design and construct various waterfowl, habitat or recreational improvement projects through the HeavyEquipment Crew.
