We’re expanding our architectural presence in Wisconsin with the hiring of senior project manager and architect David Delfosse, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, who will serve as our integrated design leader. David’s over 21 years of experience includes extensive expertise in sustainable and energy-efficient building design as well as commercial, industrial, manufacturing, and higher education projects. He will lead the architectural efforts in our Green Bay/Fox Cities area office.
The continued growth and expansion of our architectural team is another example of how Ayres is providing value to our clients and our communities throughout Wisconsin and surrounding states. David brings a unique set of skills in architecture, integrated project delivery (IPD), sustainable design, and renewable technology applications.
Previously, David worked for an energy expert and national leader in electrical planning, engineering, design, and installation. There he founded and led a construction management team that oversaw the design and construction of renewable energy projects and specialty building projects. He also acted as owner’s agent, consultant, and design and construction representative on key building projects.
One notable project is the state-of-the-art, energy efficient Bubolz Nature Preserve Center in Grand Chute, Wisconsin. The first collaborative project between Ayres and David’s former employer Faith Technologies uses a microgrid of ground-mounted solar PV, a battery energy storage system, a hydrogen fuel cell, a micro-turbine, and a natural gas generator to power the preserve and its buildings.
David is helping to change the design and construction industry by solving the challenges of creating a safer, more predictable, and streamlined construction process through design and engineering. The result is multi-trade solutions that can be constructed offsite; componentized building elements that increase efficiency, reduce cost, and improve schedule; and designs that deliver value through technology and energy efficiency.
