Donald F Prochaska


Donald F. Prochaska started Prochaska & Associates on October 13, 1983 as an S-Corporation, in a small 900 sf office with just a few employees.  Don’s dream was to provide a complete, Full Service Architecture and Engineering firm.  Over the years, Don expanded the office to about 5,400 sf. with 19 employees completing his dream.  

On June 29, 2018 Don passed away unexpectedly.  His wife, retired Judge Jane H. Prochaska is committed to “keeping Don’s legacy alive”. Without hesitation, Jane took over the company of dedicated professionals. We continue to preserve Don’s legacy by working hard and maintaining Prochaska & Associates’ extremely high standards. We continue to be “Here Today… Building Tomorrow… Since 1983…”
