The special expertise he has acquired, and the ways in which he has applied it, have carved an integral and leading role for architects in the design of data centers and other critical facilities, formerly reserved only for engineers…Brian’s leadership has created a unique career path for countless young architects with a passion for technical facilities. He is more than deserving of this honor in the context of both his character and the positive impact his work has made on our profession.”
