MARK RICHARDS, PE

Chief Technical Officer

What is it that drives you in your position / why do you like doing what you do? I grew up in the trade and really enjoy sharing my experience with my team. I really enjoy the ah-ha moments and emphasizing the basics for a great design – Fit – Function – Value. I enjoy making something out of nothing. Taking a blank floor plan and creating a system that will keep the occupants comfortable is an art as much as it is a science.

What do you like doing outside of work? Being at my kid’s sports games and practices, beach camping, riding the sand dunes, floating around the lazy river.

What is your favorite food / drink / place to travel? Something else you’d rather talk about? I love good Mexican food, Baja, the So Cal deserts, motorsports, and SDSU athletics, emphasis on basketball and football.
