Timothy Dufault

Principal | Chief Executive Officer

For Tim, the process of design and construction is akin to a symphony, where the creative combination of individual pieces creates an outcome greater than the sum of its parts. Tim uses this holistic view to guide Cuningham’s strategic goals and promote a collaborative approach to the firm’s business side. As Tim sees it, his job is to “create an environment that makes people more successful.” Tim is a nationally-recognized leader on community-building learning environments, and his leadership roles within AIA includes AIA Minnesota’s Chapter President and Board Member, and Committee Chair for the AIA Committee on Architecture for Education.
