Our Team

Phillip Oprie, PE

Electrical Engineer,

“We make the building work. Our clients don’t even have to think about it.”

In his time at Design Collaborative, Phillip Oprie has been part of teams that cover the vast range of project types DC specializes in. Phillip values the integrated approach at Design Collaborative, which means close collaboration with architects, project managers and clients. Indeed, being part of DC’s engineering team offers unique opportunities for Oprie—including direct access to clients. Phillip thrives in that environment, and is energized by the chance to work alongside the knowledgeable and experienced individuals we serve in our Healthcare Studio. As an electric vehicle owner, he has a particular interest in this emerging field. Oprie continues to study the technology at great depth, and has been invited to lead presentations on best practices for powering the move to EV across Indiana and Michigan.
