Dan believes that a building must not only look good, but it must function as well. The buildings should be designed so that every user, from administrators to students, teachers, and maintenance staff, experiences the building in a positive way. A facility will not be successful if all the users aren’t able to use it to the fullest extent. By focusing on the technical aspect of the buildings, Dan strives to provide fully coordinated and functional environments. Buildings that are appropriately programmed, efficiently detailed, and meet or exceed all code expectations are Dan’s main focus for his clients and projects.
Dan also brings a high level of expertise regarding ICC-500 compliant storm shelters in schools. Dan has guided the design of more than a dozen storm shelters and has conducted close to 40 peer reviews for other architects and school districts in North Texas and Oklahoma. This level of intimate knowledge is instrumental in tackling the ever-changing environment and building code progression.
