Alex Banko

Assistant Project Manager

Alex began his career at WYK Associates, Inc. in 2021 while completing his Master of Architecture degree from Fairmont State University. Before joining WYK Associates, Alex played baseball at Fairmont State University while earning his Bachelor of Science in Architecture. At WYK, he aids the company as a part of the design team bringing experience in drafting, design, building documentation development, construction administration and the use of Building Information Modeling.

Being born and raised in Clarksburg, Alex was inspired to pursue a career in architecture by the city’s unique circumstance of urban economic decline that hides the great potential of Clarksburg and many other Appalachian towns. Alex has a special interest in the urban design and development of Appalachian communities, as well as the implementation of unique building systems that can produce architectural solutions in a way that is both sustainable and economical. While in college Alex used his summers to gain experience working for masonry and general building contractors. Through a deep understanding of building systems and technology, Alex plans to employ innovative building practices that are indicative of an Appalachian vernacular architecture. Alex believes that abundant community engagement and innovative design solutions are the keys to unlocking the full potential of these regional urban districts. He believes community is key to creation of a place with shared value which has led him into several volunteer and professional organizations including, the Clarksburg Beautification Committee, and Clarksburg Uptown, Inc.
