Jackson Hole firm’s staff members gain architect status, LEED certification
Jackson, Wyoming – June 13, 2012 – Jackson Hole architecture firm Ward + Blake Architects now counts one more architect on its staff since Chris Jaubert passed all of his ARE exams, announced Mitch Blake, firm principal. Jaubert, who joined Ward + Blake in 2006, earned his Bachelor of Architecture from Louisiana Tech University in 2006 before heading to Jackson Hole hoping to gain greater experience with a more diverse landscape. Since joining Ward + Blake Architects, Jaubert has worked on a variety of building types and continues to expand his knowledge of and love for architecture, including a special interest in the impacts of culture and environment on design.
Another Ward + Blake staff member also recently added to the firm’s credentials in sustainable design. Brett Bennett passed the LEED AP (BD+C) exam to become a LEED Accredited Professional, the third member of the Ward + Blake firm to receive LEED Professional certification. Bennett graduated from the University of Michigan in 2004 and got some hands-on work as a framer before moving to Galway, Ireland, where he spent two years designing under Niall J. Kearns Architects. The Rocky Mountains drew Brett to Wyoming, where he has worked for Ward + Blake Architects since 2007.
“Chris and Brett are good examples of our Ward + Blake staff’s passion for architecture,” says Blake. “We all truly enjoy any opportunity to expand our education in the field on an ongoing basis as well as to upgrade professional credentials. We congratulate Chris and Brett on their recent successes and are proud to add these staff milestones to our firm’s expertise.”
