Farshad Altafi, Principal, Laboratory Planner, Project Manager
Since starting at GLP in 1998, Farshad Altafi has focused on the planning, design, and construction of laboratory and related technically complex facilities. He has been an integral part of project teams participating in a wide range of architectural activities ranging from front-end programming and planning assignments to full architectural design, production services, and construction administration. His thorough approach and attention to detail have assisted him in assembling comprehensive construction document sets responding to both challenging budgetary constraints and demanding design and construction schedules. Serving also as our firm’s Production Manager, Farshad has helped us to implement a stream­lined production effort, including training and managing the production teams, the efficient organization of document sets, the close integration of consultants’ drawings, the satisfaction of code requirements, and the realities of accommodating last minute changes. His detail-oriented approach to construction ad­min­is­tration has helped us to achieve our design teams’ intents through the production of quality, integrated drawing sets that respond to the technical building challenges often found in laboratories and similarly complex buildings. When not working on design his time off is spent with his family.
