Jason Ringdahl, AIA
Jason loves seeing all parts of the project from beginning to end
Part architect, part outdoorsman—Jason is a modern-day Coloradoan. Having been raised on a farm, Jason frequently attributes his experience of planting and harvesting crops to his success in the AEC industry. He considers the big picture, plans out the process, never stops preparing, and pays attention to the fine details.
Having worked in construction during his earlier career, Jason learned many different fields of study and areas of expertise, embracing and absorbing as much knowledge as possible. Known for being an engaged listener and eager learner, Jason is approachable, caring, and objective. All of these attributes manifest into strong bonds with his teammates and projects. Practical and reasonable, he can work through challenging scenarios finding consensus and common goals among the team. Jason is focused, diligent, dependable, and caring about the outcome and consensus.
He enjoys the outdoors as an avid angler, hunter, horseman, and dog enthusiast. Health, fitness, and mental well-being are essential to Jason. He believes it is important to provide opportunities for people to find their balance and experience healthy, active, and, most importantly, enjoyable ways of life! With these core values, Jason was drawn to a career at BRS and has a particular affinity for community recreation projects.
