JUSTIN D. BRIDGES,
AIA, LEED AP
PARTNER | DIRECTOR OF ARCHITECTURE
After graduating from Drury University, Justin made Kansas City his home where he currently resides along with his wife Mindy and daughter Ainsley.
Justin chose a career in architecture staying close to his roots in the construction industry, where his father and brother chose their careers. Justin, an accomplished carpenter and wood worker, truly understands building materials and uses the knowledge to better his designs and constructability.
In his principal management role, Justin oversees the daily operations and production within the office. He manages a diverse commercial architecture and development group within the firm. His daily interaction with all disciplines, on a variety of projects, makes him one of the firm leaders and decision makers.
Currently affiliated with the US Green Building Council, Justin understands and embraces the need for building “green” sustainable design will ensure not only our client’s success, but the environment’s success.
As evidence by his involvement outside the firm in a variety of causes, Justin proves to be a great role model not only at DA+E, but in the community as well. Justin has connections to a variety of professional and philanthropic organizations including The American Institute of Architects, US Green Building Council, Kansas City Area Development Council, Urban Land Institute, American Red Cross, United Way, AIA Kansas City, OE Ellis Society and Children’s Mercy Hospital.
