Memorable Project Story:
“The projects that are the most exciting for me are the ones that challenge me to think outside the box. I love a project that involves new types of building materials and the opportunity to develop innovative solutions when using these new materials alongside conventional construction materials. A recent example of this is a 5,000 sq. ft. 2-story residential project…the Smith residence…which was constructed using GCT Insulated Concrete Panels. The challenge was how to provide a proper connection between the panels and the concrete floor deck. Coming up with a solution that met the code requirements without compromising certain aspects of the project that were important to the client was an experience that was quite rewarding!”
“Help fulfill the desire of the client with a design that is easy to read and more important, easy to build. In other words, keep it simple!”
“I really enjoy being outdoors…hiking, biking, white-water rafting, and photographing nature. I also enjoy playing cricket and squash!”
