Kelly Artz, PE
Director of Sustainability, Electrical Engineer, RCDD, LEED AP BD+C, WELL® AP, Partner
Kelly is the newest partner and has been an integral member of the electrical and technology teams at EP since 2014. He has 25 years of experience working across a range of market sectors with particular strength in the education market. He is directly involved in all aspects of electrical design, including lighting, power, fire alarm, telecommunications and security systems. His status as a Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) demonstrates his exceptional skill in telecommunications design.
Kelly works closely with each member of the team to develop solutions that meet the client’s goals. Helping clients balance first costs with long-term adaptability and effectiveness is one of Kelly’s strongest assets. His mantra is to help you succeed, make it better, and have fun along the way.
Kelly is a LEED-registered professional and is one of the first engineers in the state of Minnesota to receive WELL accreditation. His commitment to efficiency and sustainability have made him a go-to resource for projects seeking environmental responsibility and occupant wellness goals.
Outside of work, Kelly enjoys boating, snow skiing and the constant renovation required of a “fixer upper.” Thanks to YouTube and a fondness for old cars, he also dabbles in auto repairs. His handyman skills have gone international – helping build four homes in Tijuana, Mexico. On Sundays, he’s likely to be running the sound board at his church. He’s completed two half-marathons, finished the Tough Mudder three times, and along with his wife is enjoying their newfound empty-nester status.
