Assistant Director, Architectural Specifications
Joe has moved to ARCOM's Virginia office from Lincoln, Nebraska.
Joe has nearly 30 years experience in the construction industry. After receiving a Masters of Architecture
degree from the University of Nebraska, Joe served as the City of Lincoln's commercial plans examiner for 10
years. Anxious to broaden his horizons, he then joined the firm of The Clark Enersen Partners, Architects,
where he learned the art of spec writing.
"I spent countless hours studying the 'green sheets' as we called the MasterSpec Evaluations. It was like
getting a second college education. I never imagined that one day I'd be writing them myself."
His career also includes work for Bahr, Vermeer and Haecker, Architects, in Lincoln and Omaha, as well as
several years practicing as an independent spec writer. Joe is joined in Alexandria by his wife DeAnn, and
their two cats, Calvin and Hobbes. Their son, Dan, lives in NY.
