Joe Bergin

My interests in architecture began at an early age, but my professional career in architecture began as a summer intern in New Haven, CT in 1985.  I continued working through my college career at architecture firms in New York City until my graduation from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY in 1990.

While I had been groomed by a caring mentor early in my career to manage large, complex multi-million dollar building projects in an urban context, and while I take great pleasure in exercising those abilities, I also find much professional satisfaction designing houses and apartments.  I started designing residential building projects in NYC in 1996, and continued the practice in Connecticut from 2002.

Over the decades, I have devoted myself to identifying and serving the unique needs of successful building projects. To that end, I feel much reward and satisfaction by the many referrals that have come to me from builders who have built from my drawings.

My professional credentials include being a licensed architect with registrations in New York (1995) and Connecticut (2005).  I am certified by the National Council of Architecture Review Boards (NCARB) and have been a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) since 1997.  In 2009 I achieved a LEED AP credential (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – Accredited Professional) and have since then grown a genuine interest in energy efficient building design.

A bit about me personally:  In the town where I live, I volunteer as an Economic Development Commissioner and as the Chairman of the Architectural Review Committee, a sub-committee of the Planning & Zoning Commission.  A long distance commuter for a good portion of my career, I have for more than a decade now lived only a short, scenic drive from where I work, with my wife and two daughters, in a house that was built when Thomas Jefferson was President of the United States.
