Additional work included façade and roof restorations. b. IBB (Federal) – 2 former 5 year IDIQ contracts that included domestic and overseas projects. The range of work included rehabilitations as well as new construction. On overseas work, the project required sustainable design and mission critical facility work.

  3. 3. Professional Design Associates LLC Company Mission Statement Friday, January 1, 2010 B. Experience a. New Construction Experience includes residential, commercial, industrial and government sector work. The range of building types includes single-family residences from two to fifteen thousand SF and multi story buildings from 20 – 100K SF. b. Restoration & Rehabilitation Experience includes residential, commercial, industrial and government sector work. As example, restoration includes older turn of the century classical architecture requiring re-roofing in historic preservation and public spaces such as park gazebos requiring authentic clay tile roof works and hard wood carpentry. Rehabilitation consisted of preservation or restoration of shell spaces and re-working of spaces either for existing or new use. The rehabilitation would modernize amenities, utilities and provide for a responsive program space use. c. Planning-neighborhood and/or community As noted above in municipal public sector work, there were numerous projects, generally involving parks, recreation facilities and public spaces where neighborhood planning and community grass root support was required. Additionally, in private work, presentations in support of variances have been conducted. In addition, in communications work including data centers and broadcast transmitting (Cell/TV/Radio) facilities the variance work would require community outreach to garner local support and gain approvals of certain developments. Often, Variance work or Local presentations would include expert witness testimony and/or attorney assistance. C. Green (Sustainable Design) Much of the overseas government sector work, communications facilities, mission critical facility design and fire/police stations require sustainable design features. The breadth of experience in this work is quite extensive and has been employed for over twenty years. Currently, Edward DeLaPaz is a LEED AP (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design – Accredited Professional) and as such is recognized as a professional versed in the process of certifying a project and having a comprehensive knowledge of sustainable design. http://professionaldesignassociatesllc.design.officelive.com/
