With an impressive tenure since 2004 and 20 years of comprehensive experience, Bert brings a modern and innovative perspective to his multifaceted role. He is a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Colorado, embodying the highest standards of professionalism.

Collaborating closely with his associate Principals, Bert plays a pivotal role in establishing cutting-edge HVAC system building design criteria. He actively contributes to space planning, ensuring optimal functionality and performance, while also delivering energy-efficient mechanical designs that exceed owner expectations while remaining within budgetary constraints. From the initial stages of Schematic Design through the meticulous process of permitting and Construction Documents, Bert assumes full responsibility for designing state-of-the-art mechanical systems for new construction, upgrades, and renovations. His unwavering commitment to excellence is reflected in his submittal reviews, comprehensive site observations, and detailed reports to the project owner, assuring every project aligns flawlessly with our design standards.

In addition to his design expertise, Bert is a skilled project coordinator, adept at collaborating with owners, architects, and other engineering disciplines throughout the design and construction phases.
