Jeff Mathis, NCARB - Architect


Jeff began drafting and design in a professional environment as a high school student and continued working throughout the process or receiving his formal architectural education. His early experience was in the field of Civil Engineering where he completed civil construction drawings, participated in land master planning, infrastructure, site grading, and public road design.

In the Fall of 1999 Jeff joined Greg at MRW Design Associates and, in the ensuing years, has progressed from basic design and drafting support into fulfilling all roles associated with being the principal architect at MRW. Jeff obtained his professional educational degree, a Master of Architecture, from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, School of Architecture, in the spring of 2007.

Jeff ensures project continuity from concept to completion by providing complete project design, drafting and coordination. He works with key project players from site and building design to construction document production and through the required governmental approval processes and construction administration.

Jeff currently holds active registration/licensure in the following states: Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, and Idaho. He is also NCARB Certified; this certification provides a clear path for registration/licensure in most states.
