AIA

Managing Partner

Max Medina has more than 36 years of experience leading K-12, civic, and public safety projects in Southern, Central, and Northern California for over 36 years. He has worked with all DSA offices as well as many city and county building departments. At the beginning of his career, all projects were traditional design-bid-build. Since then, he has been involved with all other delivery methods: CM Multi-Prime, Lease Lease-Back, and Design-Build.

Max knows that public projects need a lot of skill and attention to satisfy the demands of boards and their communities. His approach to architecture is collaborative to resolve functional challenges with creative and uplifting solutions while staying close to the project from planning through grand opening. With a variety of completed projects in various California regions, he is experienced in accurately advising clients on construction budgets and cost estimates. Max also uses the successes of each project to mentor all staff so that lessons learned are used to improve the firm’s overall services.

“My favorite designs successfully resolve the most basic requirements. When we get it right, we earned the freedom to unleash the rest of our talent to create places that are beautiful and uplifting.”
