Stephen Chapes

Associate, San Jose

Stephen has worked on a wide array of projects including civic, educational, medical, and commercial facilities. Specializing in sustainable buildings, he has worked on numerous projects incorporating photovoltaics (PV) and wind turbines. These PV systems have included a variety of different sizes and types, including thin film, single and multi-crystalline panels; flat and tilted mounting; rooftop, grade and shade structures; stand alone, and building integrated photovoltaics. He is also experienced in designing power distribution systems, lighting, lighting controls, and fire alarm systems.

Stephen graduated with a Masters and Bachelor’s degree in Architectural Engineering, and as a result, is versed in coordination issues between the architectural, structural, mechanical, and construction disciplines. This enhanced coordination has been exceedingly important when designing sustainable buildings and working with an integrated team, and has been further enhanced by Stephen’s knowledge of the LEED rating system and PV system design.
