Experience: In twenty-four (24)+ years of my involvement in building construction and the practice of architecture, I have actively participated in the advancement of the means, methods, and technology that collectively form our profession of Architecture. As an Architect, I have witnessed the evolutionary process of technology, design, construction, and the delivery systems and with a cadre of technically experienced consultants, I have gained valuable experience in the single prime, multi prime, design build and the construction manager, at risk delivery systems. Today, the cost of facilities designed and monitored exceeds 100 million dollars in construction value. In all projects a cost-effective solution to meet the clients needs with the appropriate architectural image is the major design parameter at the office of AKAI.
