Alliance Residential Builders
Trained as an architect, Michael F. D'Andrea made a conscious effort to diversify his skill set early in his career in order to pursue not only the rewards of that field but the wider realm of real estate development and construction. He has worked for several well-known companies in the Southwest and also sits on the Scottsdale Planning Commission. As a result, he has developed extensive skills in site acquisition, zoning and entitlements, development finance, architectural design and construction. He has been involved with several high-profile projects, including Optima Camelview Village, Broadstone Scottsdale Waterfront, The Residences @ CityScape, Artesia Village, Westgate Park City Resort and Fender Guitar.
Dedicated to his field even during his 'off time'
35, Project Environmental Engineer
As an environmental engineer who takes his discipline very seriously, David Eberle has literally taken his work home with him, having installed a greywater irrigation system in his home. He also developed a greenhouse gas management and reporting platform that tracks all Kyoto, Japan, greenhouse gases using calculation methodologies that followed reporting protocols developed by the California Air Resources Board, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and The Climate Registry. He also volunteers for UN-Habitat. But beyond this extra-curricular pursuits, it is his ability to be proficient, fast and organized that has drawn the most praise. "At a point when there was a lot of critical activity going on with our project, David stepped up to take on a lot of responsibility, and managed to do it adeptly," says Brent Alspach, ARCADIS task leader.
