Jeremy Meek literally grew up with DSC in his DNA. As Sustainability Programs Manager, Jeremy's keen desire is to advance this company's long—standing commitment to green building—more specifically, to provide clients with trademark DSC excellence while helping them tread ever lighter on the environment.

Jeremy's job responsibilities include managing projects, and components of projects, related to green building certifications, building retrofits and renewable energy. Along with a Bachelor's degree in Construction Management from Arizona State University and a Master's of Philosophy in Engineering for Sustainable Development from the University of Cambridge in England, Jeremy brings more than 14 years of on—the—job training, which he gained while working at DSC every summer since 1996. In 2007, Jeremy also had the opportunity to manage an out—of—town project—his best memory with DSC. "We take every project very personally, but in this case I actually lived on the jobsite in an Airstream trailer," he shares. "That gave me a unique sense of ownership and insight into our process, and illustrated that nobody achieves success on their own. I still use that experience when I work with clients today."

Jeremy is a LEED for Homes Accredited Professional and holds an OSHA Safety Card. He also recently accepted a position as Adjunct Faculty at ASU's Del E. Webb School of Construction, teaching in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environments.

This native Arizonan likes anything outdoors that puts the wind in his face. His preferences: cycling (he hopes to ride solo across the U.S. someday), photography, scuba diving and hiking. Want to share one of his true loves? Ask him to take you out for a plate of great Mexican food.
