Douglas Smith

Prior to working in engineering and consulting, I was fortunate to start my career as an HVAC mechanic in a large high-rise building while attending college.  I later had the opportunity to work as a contractor as an installer and project manager for a large building automation system contractor.  Having this background has given me a unique perspective having served as the Owner maintaining equipment, Contractor bidding and implementing projects, and from the Consulting Engineer developing plans and specifications.

I am part of COGENCE because our industry is facing new and evolving challenges that we all need to come together to develop solutions that work for Owners, Architects, Engineers, and Contractors so that together we can deliver better results.  The collaboration and open dialog is exciting and refreshing.
