Matthew Etu, P.E.

Looking to relocate back to Buffalo after a two year stint with a firm in Rochester, Matt answered an ad for an Architectural Engineering position in 2002.  Almost two decades later, Matt has risen to be a well-known, well-respected and sought after member of a design team.  After several years with TE, Matt diversified his knowledge base by embracing civil-site design in equal measure with structural building design; a skill which he has developed into site and urban planning, as well. 

A glutton for punishment, Matt wears multiple hats as lead designer (overseeing the production of all structural and civil engineering projects) and office manager while also serving on the board of the local non-profit Buffalo Architecture Foundation, and, starting in 2018, as an elected official on the Village of Williamsville Board of Trustees.

An advocate for education and literacy in the community, Matt, as part of a design competition through the Buffalo Architecture Foundation, spearheaded the deisgn, construction and installation of six, architecturally unique Little Free Libraries placed in underpriviledged neighborhoods throughout the City of Buffalo.  Matt has also served as member of the local chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers and provided professional critique for students at SUNY Buffalo School of Architecture.

Matt is the father of one curly haired girl.
