Cliff Greenlief, PE

Senior Principal

Having been in the industry since 1986, Cliff brings a high level of structural design experience to the table delivering a wide variety of commercial architecture projects. As the Structural Managing Director in the Kansas City office, Cliff listens intensely to clients and owners and is focused on the entire project, not just the needs of the structural team. Whether it’s a commercial office building, a higher education research/teaching facility, a sports/recreation facility, or a justice/civic facility, he has the passion and insight to assist clients in transforming their abstract needs into a constructed solution, all while working within limited budgets, tight schedules, and construction realities.

Cliff thrives in a team setting, recognizing that the collective power of a group overshadows the abilities of a single individual. As a group leader and coach, he works hard to mentor the next generation of leaders and managers.


B.S., Architectural Engineering, Kansas State University
