As a design professional with over 40 years of experience, Tim believes that  collaborative and fully integrated teams  create exceptional design solutions. He is a principal in the Higher Education studio and has provided laboratory planning and facility design services exclusively for universities for more than 20 years. He has worked with hundreds of administrators, faculty, and staff members, and students, and he is driven by their passion and dedication to teaching, learning, and discovery.

Since 2010, Tim has taught an all-day fundamentals course three times each year on planning and designing science, engineering, and research facilities at Tradeline. Over the past 13+ years of fundamentals courses, he has met and collaborated with hundreds of university and industry team members who are all focused on creating extraordinary facilities to enable innovation. While he enjoys providing perspective and experience to each class, he feels blessed to be able to learn from such a distinguished group of professionals.

One of Tim’s favorite projects is the Zachry Engineering Education Complex for the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University. This 530,000-square-foot facility focused on providing a new direction for undergraduate engineering education. The hands-on experiences created within the Education Complex provide students with real-world experiences in multi-disciplinary environments. Together with Texas A&M, the planning and design team truly created a home for the 20,000+ engineering students in College Station.

He is also proud of Treanor’s work on the new Research and Discovery Centre for the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto. After several CAMH team members attended one of the Tradeline Fundamentals classes, Treanor was hired to program the new 380,000-square-foot research facility. We have been working with CAMH continuously since September of 2017.  After programming, Treanor and KPMB Architects in Toronto competed in an international design competition and were awarded the design for the one-of-a-kind facility. The work being done by CAMH on addictions and mental illness is remarkable and is a great source of inspiration for all team members.

Tim is a certified Professional Engineer licensed in CO, MO, and TX.

Get to know Tim

Who is your biggest hero?

My dad, and it is not even close. I was fortunate to have my dad in my life until I was nine years old. On January 18, 1969, my dad was a passenger on United Flight 266 that crashed into the Pacific Ocean. Everything good in me comes from my dad. The bad parts are all on me. Dad was a pilot, an artist, an athlete (who could bowl with either hand), and most of all, totally committed to his family. He was a nut for Christmas which is why we open most of our gifts on Christmas Eve (he could not wait). I have a granddaughter named Charlie, for my dad.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Play with my grandkids.

What is your advice to young professionals in your field?

Focus on vision and passion.
