Chad has been with CR-BPS since it was founded in 2008. Chad has extensive experience in providing facility and energy data to support Facility and Energy Management Master Plans for state, county, and local government and tribal agencies. His attention to detail and dedication to our clients’ best interests have been invaluable to the company’s growth and renown.
Chad has been evaluating the efficiencies and integrity of buildings for over 15 years, including assessing their existing systems to determine approximate life span and deferred maintenance items. In addition, Chad assists in designing, drafting, conducting code reviews, and cost estimating. In the past three years alone, Chad has assessed, analyzed and evaluated over 10 million square feet of Minnesota public facilities with his trademark attention to detail, using the most advanced building science technology available. Chad has assessed a wide variety of building types, including public safety, transportation, maintenance, office, power plant, manufacturing, public works headquarters, visitor centers, educational, waste water treatment, storage, park, warehouses, aquatic, ice, and parking ramps.
Chad holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. He has completed VFA Facilities Assessment training and is LEED GA accredited.

When Chad isn’t working on CR-BPS projects, you will find him with his young son. Whether they are just hanging out, going on hikes, “playing cars” (smashing them is best), or playing basketball or soccer, Chad is a dedicated dad. Chad also finds time to feed the artistic side of his personality, creating two-dimensional charcoals and oils as well as three-dimensional pottery and sculpture.
