Matthew Ostermann started as a computer engineering student. But after one semester of Intro to Java, he decided maybe this was not for him. Later when a college roommate said he had to finish drawing a barn for class, Matthew asked “What major requires students to draw a barn?”
Architectural Engineering was the answer.
Matthew, loving math, and growing up in the construction industry thought, “Maybe I will give this a try.” Six years later, Matthew graduated Kansas State University with a Master of Science in Architectural Engineering and a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management.
Matthew earned his Kansas Professional Engineer License after immersing himself in the engineering industry designing restaurants, portions of power plants, and box retail stores in 46 states. Then in 2011, Matthew joined ALTMAR, Inc. as a project manager and estimator.
In 2016, Matthew left ALTMAR Inc. to start his own Residential Design Build Firm in Colorado and earn his Colorado Engineering License. Returning to Kansas in 2017, Matthew rejoined his father, and ALTMAR Inc. General Contractors became Altmar Enterprises, a name more accurately describing the wide variety of services the company now offers.
