Work Role Architect
Company Name Architect
Description My architectural and construction/project management education and training started at Texas Tech University, where I earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree with an emphasis on structures.  I have experience serving as the architect and as a contractor with renovation, remodeling and additions of existing facilities.  I have developed broad and in-depth practical knowledge refined through years of hands-on experience as an architect in leading, executing and implementing:
  • Real estate due diligence assessments
  • Architecture design /build projects
  • Project performance assessment/risk mitigation
  • Construction loan/asset consulting
  • Property insurance claims investigation & presentation
  • Federal ADA & Texas accessibility assessments, design, and implementation
In providing clients with project and construction management, I have worked both as a team leader and participant organizing and assembling teams of architects/ engineers/ contractors/ financial personnel for projects ranging from 1,000 square feet lease spaces to a 650,000 square foot total renovations.  I have managed many clients’ insurance claims (e.g.: vandalism, fires, storm occurrences, etc).  In project and construction management, typically I supervise and evaluate the project planning and associated construction effort, budget, performance, and regulatory compliance. Real estate due diligence services include property condition assessments (commercial, multi-family), accessibility assessments and environmental assessments for retail, commercial, offices, office/warehouse, industrial, and multi-family facilities.  Typically items included as a part of the property assessment report are: site/facility inspections, identification of critical and non-critical repairs/deferred maintenance concerns, development of the corrective repair and capital reserve escrow budgets, and oversight/inspections of on-going construction.  Performing due diligence assessments has given me a practical view of projects from schematic design through long-term construction performance, project management, risk mitigation, and financial return. As an Architect working with my real estate investor clients, I have been involved with development, new construction, and rehabs of their existing commercial or residential facilities (single family or multi family) or sites.  My project services are comprehensive in nature and include site selection/zoning review, design studies, total facility renovations, exterior rehabs, space planning, and full project construction planning/ management/ performance review consulting.
