Juan Silva

Senior Associate / Senior Project Manager

An architect with over twenty years of professional experience, Juan began his career working for Milford Wayne Donaldson, a national leader in historic preservation. During this time, Juan played a significant role in the renovation of several buildings on the National Register of Historic Places including the San Diego County Administration Center and the Balboa Park Organ Pavilion. His early introduction to forensic architecture and the need to develop inventive solutions for non-standard conditions helped him to develop a thorough understanding of construction that has served him well throughout his career.

Juan has served as the Project Architect and Project Manager for a wide range of community facilities, including fire stations, customer service facilities, and operations facilities. Juan was instrumental in developing the construction drawings for the San Diego County Operations Center. Also possessing a deep knowledge of the design of national defense facilities, Juan served as the Project Manager for the Marine Corps Special Operations Command Headquarters, the LEED Gold Force Intelligence Operations Center at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, and the award-winning Advanced Hawkeye Training Facility at the Naval Air Warfare Center in Ventura. Juan is bilingual and has served as an ACE mentor.
