Kenneth Costello

Senior Principal, Site Discipline Leader

As leader of SMRT’s Site Design Group, Ken shines at collaborating from the ground up and across disciplines.

Long before the shovel meets the ground, Ken is guiding design to site a building for the optimal user experience. Ken has more than 20 years experience in site design and planning.

Since joining SMRT in 2013, he has integrated the firm’s multi-state site group in both practice and geography.

Ken holds a Master in Landscape Architecture from the University of Colorado at Denver, where his preference for the outdoors and the arc-and-tangent proved more appealing than the straighter angles of architecture.

After hours, Ken’s creativity and knowledge of plant material find expression in home brewing porters and stouts.
