Ari Rodriguez Boog, AIA

With almost 30 years of experience in commercial and industrial projects, I have developed a solid mastery of architecture, including a deep understanding of building codes and life safety requirements in several countries. I have managed the architectural discipline for multiple complex projects and project teams, and have produced different project delivery methods, including design-build, design-bid build and EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) projects.

I have developed outstanding leadership skills. I have been an asset to every corporation for which I have worked, and have challenged myself to produce outstanding quality work, while making myself a better professional after every project or assignment. I have created and participated in the creation of an architectural section business unit, along with many corporate procedures, including facility design, life safety, means of egress, fixed ladders and fireproofing.

I have earned the respect of my peers and direct reports due to my technical knowledge, caring attitude, dedication and positive approach to the daily challenges of the work I do. It is with this expertise and sense of team work that I transition into business ownership: to bring the same quality work with some additional benefits to my clients.
