Ty Yurkovic, AIA

Senior Architect, Shareholder

Ty is a Senior Architect, Shareholder and Board Member at NorthStar. Originally from both Northern California and Southeastern, Pennsylvania. He studied Art and Architecture at Penn State University where he earned his bachelor’s degree. He relocated to Chico 20 years ago and worked at a local Architecture firm prior to joining NorthStar. In his time with the company, he has experienced a number of wonderful moments of professional growth, including becoming a Licensed Architect, and transitioning into an Architect, Lead Designer and Mentor.

A detail-oriented leader at NorthStar, Ty specializes in commercial, multi-family residential, healthcare and education projects. He appreciates how unique the opportunity is at NorthStar to get hands on experience on everything quickly. When contrasted with larger firms, he says the number of responsibilities and opportunities for young architects is substantially greater at NorthStar.

Ty most admires his wife, who does a great job juggling numerous responsibilities as an executive and mom. His favorite hobby is playing disc golf, which he describes as a nice way to get outside with family and friends to enjoy some wide-open spaces. Besides being known as “Ty” his most common alias is “dad.”
