“My career to date has been driven by two key imperatives: to design systems that enable ever-evolving research and to drive these energy-intensive facilities toward a carbon Net Zero future.”

Jonathan Friedan is a national voice in high performance systems and retrofit strategies for institutions and corporations. Since joining the practice in 1987, he has developed a significant resume of built facilities that exhibit sensitivity to programmatic function, innovative use of appropriate technology, and a practical sense of reliable building operations.
