Andrew Benson

Design Technician

After graduating from Northwest Technical Institute in the late 90s, Andy worked with three different architectural firms in the Twin Cites designing assisted living, medical, institutional and residential spaces before joining Reprise. With us, he eased into a steady diet of commercial work without skipping a beat.

We applaud Andy’s rock solid grasp of construction documentation and his lighthearted, focused enthusiasm for work. We do wonder, however, if his efforts are a means to enable his gusto for sports. In the spring, summer and fall, he coaches, plays, watches…you name it. His need to be involved in the game appears to be so strong that we wonder how he gets through the winter months. Maybe that is why he collects autographs from sports stars. Ron Santo, Barry Sanders, Wayne Gretzke are among proudest possessions.

Andy isn’t one to spend time philosophizing about his work. He is keenly task-oriented and energized by speed and precision. Whether Andy is working out a work process issue or a team roster, his mantra is, “Just do it.”
