  • Brian F. Pederson, AIA cont. Professional Development AIA MN Brown Bag Committee Past member Code Learning Lunch Seminars - OAE Presented 5 sessions related to IBC Community Involvement Habitat for Humanity Volunteer Team Coordinator Group leader for 5 on-site sessions Board of Elders, King of Grace Lutheran Church Building Committee Chair; Youth Board; Capitol Improvement Board Southdale YMCA Volunteer 3 Yr Coach T-Ball, Basketball, Soccer, Football Edina Creek Valley Kids Club Parent Advisory Board Job Specific Professional Experience roles, duties and responsibilities while at Opus A-E I joined OAE in 2000 as a project architect primarily working in the Opus South region. My main tasks were to produce D.Dev./C.Doc./Const. Support for multiple two-four story commercial office developments located in Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina. Tenant build-out to suit followed the shell packages. The client was typically Opus South Construction Corp. project management group. Some of the more significant tasks included Building code coordination, bid package prep, and design confirmations along with shop drawing review. Usually supervised 1 technical support staff directly. In 2001 I was appointed to Senior Project Architect and joined the design, programming, and documentation process for the Best Buy World Headquarters, Richfield, MN. My role was to lead an architectural team producing design and construction documentation of the four office towers and overall site. Provided D.Dev./C.Doc./Const. Support. Tenant build to suit was designed by Perkins-Will (Lisa Pool, principal contact) and OAE provided the construction documentation and support. The client was Opus Northwest Const. and personal interaction with BBuy executive teams. Significant tasks included visioning and design support, building code review and implementations, bid package prep, and significant construction support. Supervised 5 technical support staff directly. Final as-built drawings submitted 2003. A significant market shift for most Opus developers was to re-include market rate multi-family housing into their portfolios. In 2004 Carlyle Condominiums (originally named Bridge Place) started the design and entitlement process thru the city of Minneapolis. Working with Humphries Partners-Dallas (Walter Hughes, partner) I led a team taking over both design control and production documentation of the project to regionalize and solidify it architecturally. The client(s) were Opus Northwest and Apex Asset Mgt. (Bob Lux, Alatus). BBGM-NY and Studio Hive (Shawn Gaither, partner) were the interior designer of public spaces. Significant tasks included entitlement, marketing support, building code implementation, unit design, and significant construction support. Supervised 4 technical support staff directly. Final as-built drawings submitted 2007. I was promoted to Architectural Coordinator in 2005 during the duration of this project. The Opus East office in Philadelphia, PA provided the next high-rise mixed use opportunity for me. Located in center city, the 1919 Market Street project began design process in 2007. Designed in conjunction with the Washington, DC office of Opus East. Significant tasks included entitlement, faade development, unit and retail component development, and bid package prep. Supervised 3 technical support staff directly and worked very closely with Opus East construction management as this would be their first high-rise and multi- family project in center city Philadelphia. Project obtained building permit but was put on hold pending funding and development partnership revisions. Auto-Cad ADT 2006 proficient; Revit 2009 trained; Microsoft Office suite While at Opus I have developed good working relationships with assigned construction managers, design staff, and clients. I feel I have facilitated effective, efficient project leadership and provided an overall positive candor regardless of assignment. Please feel free to contact me to schedule a confidential interview or with any further requests. Brian F. Pederson, AIA - Personal Contact Information Telephone: 952-942-5756 2 of 3
