David Luttrell, AIA, FCP, CSI, LEED AP
Prior to joining DAG, Dave had spent five years as the Director of Facilities at the University of West Florida. A graduate of the University of Kansas with a degree in Architecture and Urban Design, Dave joined DAG in 2005. Prior to that Dave had worked with DAG as a team partner on civic and educational projects through a previous firm and frequently met with DAG members at semi-annual FEFPA Conferences. When the firm opened its office in Pensacola, Dave was selected to be the office leader.
With a keen desire to become immersed in fields that influence his profession, Dave was the founding president of the Pensacola chapter of the Construction Specifications Institute in 1998, an organization dedicated to educating, collaborating and improving the communication of construction information throughout the Design and Construction community. Additionally, with a career steeped in educational projects, Dave pursued a CPTED accreditation and continues to apply those design principles as a Florida CPTED Practitioner, a designation by the Florida Attorney General, to enhance safety and security for all projects he touches. He serves on the board of FLDOCA to promote CPTED design principles around the state. He is also a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and is a LEED AP, a professional designation by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
Underpinned by the philosophy that in order to develop and sustain clients for the long-term, Dave believes that the designer must be committed to working collaboratively to find solutions to complex issues. It is this approach to every project that Dave instills in his staff, expecting that they will strive to exceed the client’s expectations with a passion for great design, never losing sight that a high degree of quality control results in quality documents.
