Katherine Van Der Spek


Project Manager

Katherine started her career in New York City working on mixed-use high rises and the renovaion of existing buildings into luxury condos. While there she developed a passion for infill and adaptive reuse projects and loves the creative thinking that these types of buildings can require.

She left New York for Coburn in 2017 and has worked with a variety of project scales ranging from tenant fit outs all the way up to neighborhood planning but her expertise is in large scale multi-family or mixed use developments and affordable housing. She enjoys the challenge of navigating projects through the entitlement process, and lead the team that worked on 30PRL, which received an Eagle Award in 2022. It was one of the first developments in Boulder to be designed under the city’s Form Based Code and required extensive collaboration with city officials and the project team.

Katherine holds a Master of Architecture from the Savannah College of Art and Design and is a registered architect in Colorado.
