Dan Gavin AIA, LEED AP :: Principal

Group Leader, Architecture

Whether it's a simple renovation or new state-of-the-art facility, Dan's team works hand-in-hand with clients to make sure their vision is being achieved. Dan was one of the original founders of Farnsworth Group's Architecture practice, which started more than 20 years ago.

Why Farnsworth Group?

We are professionals that are passionate about our role as Regional Contributors and bring value to our clients through "thought leadership," excellent service, and award winning designs. We foster a culture of trust, integrity and service, both internally and in our valued relationships with clients.

What I like most about my job:

Working with outstanding, professional and passionate people who are committed to our company and what we stand for in the community. It is all about the people, those we work with each day, those we serve as our valued clients and those whose lives are improved by our designs and professional services.

If I weren't an Architect, I'd be:

Serving others in a tangible way to make an impact for eternity, running a bed and breakfast with my wife in some east coast city and/or renovating historical homes.

When not at work, you can find me:

Typically with my family, working on our home, ministering to others and, on occasion, riding my Harley.
