Theatrical & Performance
Many years ago, Jon and Jeff entered into the Architectural Engineering program at the University of Colorado looking forward to learning more about buildings and the process of taking them from vision to reality. They learned about structural engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, architecture, construction management, and various other tracts associated with the architecture and construction industry. After taking their first lighting design class, they were both hooked. Lighting provides the bridge between creativity and engineering and was the perfect specialty within their Architectural Engineering degrees. This education gave them a solid foundation to enter into the world in which architects and their teams bring architecture to life.
Jon and Jeff began their lighting and engineering career at the same firm after graduating college. Their friendship, that started in college, grew over the years, from volleyball in Washington Park, weekend barbeques, and mountain biking Mt. Falcon, which ultimately led to the discussion of starting a firm of their own. In July 2004 they started AE Design with the core values of providing cutting edge design, focusing on integrating lighting design into electrical systems that works with the architecture, and just as importantly, putting the client first and providing a high level of service and coordination. They understand that a successful project is all about the process, not just the end results. And this commitment has been the driver in the success of AE Design over the years as it is passed along to all new staff, from the first moment they are interviewed as prospective candidates.
