Mr. Ordiz has spent over 30 years working to solve the architectural challenges of institutional clients throughout Central California. He has actively participated in the design of many of the educational projects built in Kern County within the last 20 years. As a leader in energy and environmental design as a LEED® Accredited Professional, he is familiar with all the sustainability considerations that have become important issues in the design of schools. Day lighting, energy-efficient systems, and proper site planning are some of the recent concepts used in today's school designs.
Through his experience, Mr. Ordiz has learned that communication between clients, building users, and architect is a critical factor in any successful project. He believes that a firm's principal should have hands-on involvement in all phases of an architectural project. He is dedicated to fostering a strong line of communication between client and architect so that clients can be assured that their needs will be met.
Mr. Ordiz has been recognized for his leadership in several civic and community groups and served as the President of the Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce in 2014.
