We are experts with integrity and deliver quality services on schedule.
SGA ENGINEERS is humbled by our extensive history of repeat client projects where we work directly with architects, engineers, owners, manufacturers, and vendors alike. We value our clients with the clear understanding that they are the core of our business. We do not chase projects; we build relationships with people aligned with our core values who appreciate our values and execution of accurate and precise services.
Our teammates have direct, hands-on installation experience and understand the construction industry. We step beyond the engineering design realm and understand installation clearances, phasing, spooling, sequencing, serviceability requirements, and project scheduling.
Our passion for our work is evident in the quality of our designs and the involvement of our professionals. Each member of our team is just that - a trusted teammate for your project. We do not hand off projects after award; the teammate you originally meet will be the teammate who sees it through providing quality services throughout the design process. No matter the size of your project, our professionals can provide the proper level of involvement and guidance to deliver a successful project.
Although our company name may be new to the industry, our team of seasoned professionals is a collection of the best in the business. We're committed to building a team of the most talented people in the consulting industry.

What are your hobbies?
I enjoy the outdoors, anything from fishing, hunting, shooting, hiking, snowboarding, kayaking and even spelunking!
Where can I find you on the weekends?
There is a good chance you won't! I'm either lost in the woods or chasing largemouth on the lake with my family.
Jared has over 18 years of experience in the architectural and engineering (A&E) fields practicing as a licensed professional engineer in MEPFT fields within the consulting industry. His project experience spans numerous building use groups including healthcare, assisted living, corporate commercial, historic & adaptive re-use, civic, hospitality, mission-critical, industrial, retail, food manufacturing, higher-education, K-12, water & wastewater, religious, municipal, automation, and commissioning.

With strong forecasting skills, he manages project schedules and reacts expeditiously and diligently to challenges that may arise. In conjunction with contractors, he has led the charge for detailed coordination modeling efforts which minimize field changes and streamline construction by installers. Utilizing Building Information Modeling (BIM) during all stages of the project permits Jared to provide a quick and simple bill of material for take-offs and procurement. His strengths include integrated lean project delivery, enhanced commissioning, LEED design efforts, and building automation control system sequence and integration. His approach to leveraging several communication channels allows for constant contact with design and construction teams alike. Jared is a member of The United States Green Building Council and The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers where his active membership provides insight into emerging technologies and sound engineering principles. He is registered as a Professional Engineer in several states, carries membership with the NCEES, is a LEED® Accredited Professional, and is registered as a Building Commissioning Design Professional (BCxP) with ASHRAE.
Jared enjoys the collaborative and team environment of consulting. In addition, he thoroughly enjoys mentoring students and other engineers in the challenging and rewarding field of engineering design. He gives back to the community by serving as a volunteer on several boards and organizations in the area. Jared is a resource for master planning, technical design, code compliance, and construction installations. Jared is a subject-matter expert in airborne infectious disease pathways and mitigation through layered approaches within design and construction.
"We understand finding a dedicated engineering teammate can be difficult. We want to develop a relationship with you and be your trusted partner. We have the expertise and personal drive to meet your schedule and project-specific requirements."
What are your hobbies?
I enjoy recreational sports, music, grilling, and good coffee! I also enjoy working on a few DIY projects around the house.
Where can I find you on the weekends?
Spending time with my family, enjoying a cookout or campfire, taking a road trip in our RV, and at church.

He promotes communication among the design team, owners, vendors, and project partners. He has extensive experience managing MEPFT project teams, from the planning and pre-design stages through all design phases, construction administration, and project closeout. His expertise includes all aspects of electrical systems, lighting and lighting controls, power distribution, emergency, and critical power systems, grounding and bonding, fire alarm, low voltage systems, lightning protection, and telecommunication and structured cabling systems. Jason is also an industry leader in power systems analysis, including arc flash risk assessment and mitigation. He is proficient in the use of BIM and 3D modeling to enhance coordination with the building structure, architecture, and mechanical systems.
Over the course of his career, Jason has earned a reputation for his integrity, collaborative approach, attention to detail, and efficient, cost-effective designs. With a few years of hands-on construction experience early in his career, he has a thorough comprehension of how his designs translate to real-world solutions and approaches engineering with an eye toward creating practical designs from concept to installation. He is active in professional organizations and strives to remain highly knowledgeable of all applicable codes and standards while staying current with new products, technologies, and construction methods.
“Our team understands the physical construction of the systems, equipment, and components they are designing and specifying. We pride ourselves on the fact that we have worked in construction and know exactly how the things we design translate to installation.”
