From a young age, Joe has been fascinated with buildings, construction and solving problems. As a mechanical engineer at IDS, Joe is able to engage in these three passions all at once. Joe’s goal with every project is to provide energy efficient mechanical systems that seamlessly blend into the building architecture. Taking the name of Integrated Design Solutions to heart, Joe works diligently with the architects and other project disciplines to provide coordinated mechanical designs that work WITH the building design without sacrificing system performance. The ultimate goal is to provide a comfortable environment for all building occupants. Joe feels that if he does his job right, people won’t even realize that he did his job at all. Outside the office, Joe enjoys solving the problems presented by everyday life with his wife and two children.
