Rich Sullivan is the Director of Architecture for Sowinski Sullivan. He has planned, designed and/or managed improvements at over 300 transportation facilities in North America over the past 30 years ranging from above- and below-grade stations and signal and yard towers to control houses, shops, and welfare facilities.

Insightful program­ming, outstanding phased construction plans, sensitive historic preservation, thoughtful site design, and experience with community planning benefit many clients, which include Amtrak, the Port Authority of NY & NJ, New York City Transit, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, NJ Transit, Metro-North Railroad, Connecticut DOT, the Long Island Railroad, NFTA, NYSDOT, CDTA, SEPTA, PATCO, BARTA, COLTS, PennDOT, WMATA, Sound Transit, and the Minneapolis Metropolitan Transportation Council.

He is recognized for his ability to understand and quantify issues that are related to building design and investigation, program sufficiency, and prioritization of budgets.
