Architect | Principal
For more than 26 years Mark Sever AIA has been designing unique custom residences in the valley and beyond. Since 1996 he has been building them as prime CM/GC. The majority of these projects are large in scale, located on challenging hillside sites and contemporary in character. This has resulted in an approach to structures, details and systems more closely related to commercial construction. The level of craftsmanship found in these projects is widely recognized and Mark has been on the leading edge of firm innovation. He saw the game-changing potentials of BIM (Building Information Modeling) before many had even heard of the acronym, and has developed several proprietary tools for virtual project management.
The Sever Group has been constructing their own highly-detailed residential projects for over 20 years, with staff craftsmen self-performing key trades. This integration has implicitly bound together understanding of how things are [can be] built with what is conceived on paper, yielding a more comprehensive, thoughtful and cost-responsible result. For projects constructed by another entity, this knowledge offers added value to clients during preliminary planning and design.
