Paul Schwer


Paul has been on a mission for more than 30 years to design the highest performing buildings possible. The proof is in his projects—from the Bullitt Center, which is the largest commercial Living Building in the world, to the Rocky Mountain Institute’s new headquarters, which is seeking to go beyond Net-Zero Energy. As president of PAE, Paul leads a talented group of mechanical and electrical engineers committed to sustainable design. He is also a fellow at the International Living Future Institute, a past AIA board member, and served on the national juries for both the AIA COTE Top Ten Awards and the ENR Top Project Awards.
