GARY WINDISH, A.I.A.

Gary is a licensed architect and general contractor.  Starting with his first job in an architectural office in 1965, He has worked in large and small firms, on projects ranging from complex commercial and industrial projects to small scale house remodels. His experience includes interior design and space planning, as well as site planning, and architectural design. His role of project architect on many projects has entailed management of the entire design team; including architects, interior designers, and consulting engineers.  He has spent a significant amount of time ”in the field,” supervising construction as well as doing work in all of the building trades with his own hands. This experience has given him a good working knowledge of building design and construction.
