Christopher Colby AIA, LEED AP



If you have listened to our show you know at Your Life Matters we care of the environment and being “green”. Well it is time to m
ove over granite countertops because Solar panels and tankless water heaters are catching on and they are the hot must-have items in new home construction. Going green has long been considered cost prohibitive to many Americans wanting to build eco-friendly homes. But last year’s record surge in energy prices is leading a lot of consumers, architects and homebuilders to rethink the math. The idea of opting for an environmentally friendly, energy-efficient home isn’t only starting to be seen as an affordable option. It’s being sold by some architects and homebuilders in United States as one that could end up saving homeowners hundreds of thousands of dollars -- and even make money. To speak with us about this fantastic change in attitude and thought is our GUEST TODAY architect Christopher Colby who is the Principal and Co-Founder of Spire Architecture & Design. 

Christopher Colby has over 10 years of diverse experience in design, planning and project management. His expertise lies in educational facilities, healthcare, community facilities and residential design. Colby has worked on numerous projects throughout his career of all sizes and budgets and has managed and provided documentation of multi-phased and multi-building projects. Responsibilities include quality control of materials and documents, compliance with and management of the schedule and knowledge of many building systems and current construction techniques. Colby is a LEED Accredited Professional and a member of the American Institute of Architects and the U.S. Green Building Council. At Spire Architecture, we view design as more than simply an exercise in aesthetics. Conceived and executed with a broader vision one that encompasses the intersection of lifestyle, social responsibility and economics.
