Jim Beltran LEED AP
I enjoy problem solving and every project presents a very complex problem no matter what the size or scope. As architects, it is our responsibility to create something that is not only beautiful, but can perform on several levels. Our buildings are successful only when they meet the needs of its users, keep those users safe and are sensitive to the surrounding community while still evoking awe, work in harmony with nature and use resources as responsibly as possible, both during and after the construction process. My goal is to contribute to the success of a project with all these things in mind. I want clients to appreciate how their buildings function just as much as how they look. Nobody is going to brag about a sports car that looks great, but performs like a 90’s minivan with a hole in its gas tank - why should architecture be any different? When I’m not at work, I’m usually spending time with my family or working on our fixer upper of a house. I also enjoy being out in nature whether it be gardening, hiking, camping, fishing, or bowhunting. Luckily for me, my family also shares this passion for the outdoors and I really enjoy teaching my daughters how to embrace something that many people find themselves becoming more and more disconnected from.
