Mike Niezer, RA

Partner, Director of Operations,

Mike Niezer is a registered architect at Design Collaborative and serves as Healthcare Studio leader and Project Manager. Mike’s experience in healthcare ranges across various project types, including hospitals, outpatient clinical settings, and medical office buildings. He is the recent president of the Fort Wayne American Institute of Architects and is actively involved in the local community. Whether with healthcare leadership, administrators, staff, or facilities, Mike finds it exciting and energizing to understand the unique needs and challenges faces in the healthcare industry, and the opportunity to impact the solution.

Mike was on a traveling jump rope team, beginning in Kindergarten on the Junior Varsity squad. His talents quickly advanced him to the Varsity Team – the Street Beats – in just First Grade. He was the youngest member to ever make the Varsity squad and maintains that distinction to this day. Probably.
