Practice : Winter 2010
After a 15 year career that included project a rchitecture and construction engineer work at various firms including Kellogg+A sso ciates, Quattrocchi Kwok Architects, a nd Turner Construction, George is currently a sole practitioner who a ssists homeowner s with planning, design and permitting ser vices, emphasizing green a nd environmentally sou nd practices for design and implementation. George cites the highlight of his career a s a participating tea m member employed by Turner Construction with responsibility for the oversight of the architectura l related subc ontracts for the renovation and restora- tion of the Hearst Memorial Mining Building on the UC Berkeley Ca mpus. This proved to be a monumental proje ct in many respects, considering the inst allation of ba se i solators under the entire building required to withstand seismic activity to as much as 48" laterally; being only 700 meters from the Hayward Fault. This triumph of the Beaux Arts style, the three story unreinforced stone and masonry building was built by Phoebe Hear st, in memory of her late husband, George Hearst to honor his work and devel- opments within the mining industry. George’s pa s sion for sustainable design a nd the BAC crossed paths this fall when a n opportunity to host an alumni brea kfa st turned into a We st Coast Green Convention invitation offered by La nc e Fletcher, BAC Director of Sustainable De sign. George’s e xtensive experienc e with, a nd enthusia sm for, con struction administration impressed Lance so he was delighted to offer a teaching position for the new sust ainable online course, Getting the Green Building You Want — Managing the Constru ction Process. George is look ing for ward to teaching asawaytogivebacktotheBAC.By sh aring both his professional and BAC e xperience s with current students, he hope s to foster a sen se of community, a cross the dista nc e.
