Our Team

Matt Elliott, AIA

Partner, Industrial Market Leader, Senior Architect,

“Hard work and humility will get you wherever you want to go in life.”

Matt Elliott leads Design Collaborative’s Industrial Studio. He has been the project manager for more than 150 projects at DC, and feels he’s doing the work he’s best at right now. In his role at Design Collaborative, he enjoys working alongside our clients, collaborating to solve unique problems. Elliott is a sleeves-rolled-up problem-solver, with a keen interest in getting from point A to point B—quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively.

Elliott’s zeal for the technical side of DC’s work complements his more design-centric colleagues. He is quick to share the benefits of Design Collaborative’s diverse team with the clients he serves. His mindset is in alignment with the teams he serves—industrious, humble, decisive, and rich with conviction. Matt demonstrates those same principles as a leader in our firm.
