Jim studied mechanical engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago where he became involved with the Industrial Assessment Center (IAC), a program sponsored by the Department of Energy to conduct free energy audits for local industrial facilities. According to Jim, it was this program where he learned to appreciate energy efficiency and sustainable design practices.
Jim is an integral member of DLR Group’s Energy + Engineering team. His passion for great design and his inquisitive nature allow him to provide an exceptional experience for the client no matter what role he takes on. As a mechanical engineer, Jim’s true passion is efficient HVAC design.
“The impact that high performance HVAC design can have on the human experience cannot be overstated. It has been shown that thermal comfort is one of the most important human factors across most vertical markets. I enjoy the fact that I can impact people’s lives through the systems I design, and do it in a way that lowers or minimizes our impact on our environment.”
