What project(s) are you working on at the moment?

Most of my time is on the Fremont Office Building, a very exciting, sustainable boutique office building in the heart of Fremont that just started construction. The LEED Gold Core & Shell project features enhanced daylighting, an efficient HVAC system, and innovative stormwater strategies, reaching beyond the project site to clean up water from the Aurora Bridge before it reaches Lake Union.
