Jacobs Engineering

1 visible recommendation for this position:

“I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working together with Peter Newton as co-worker at Jacobs Engineering and consider him a friend. I also know Peter through the American Institute of Architects (AIA) where he is an active advocate for the profession. While I was working with Jacobs, I notice an individual with talent, commitment, an alignment of goals consistent with Jacobs. I noticed an individual with a willingness to engage the process to enhance performance and the personal sacrifice to long hours and extensive travel to accomplish project schedules and deliverables. The results of his effort and work were significant.

Peter effectively led teams and was responsible for the overall delivery and performance of services. As well, he was responsible for preparing construction documents for the retail group. Peter is a self-starter, reliable, passionate and enthusiastic. I’ve always been confident knowing that Peter’s on the job because he’d be timely, accurate and complete.

I’ll welcome other opportunities to work together with Peter and would recommend him without reservation to anyone looking for a hard working, reliable and committed team member.” October 12, 2009

1st TC Kho, Project Manager / Architect, Jacobs Engineering,
studied with Peter at Phoenix College

“I studied with Peter at Phoenix College under the Sonoran Sustainable Building Advisor Program (SoSBAP), which was a 9-month comprehensive course focused on a holistic approach to sustainability in the built environment. During that period, I grew to know Peter well, as we were selected to be on the same project team for our SoSBAP presentation which we gave in May of 2011 at the conclusion of the class, after much hard work and months of research. Our project was a re-development plan for the Camelback Colonnade retail center in Phoenix, which is an aging strip mall that has fallen on hard times since the Great Recession and subsequent real-estate crash took place, and its anchor tenant, Mervyns, claimed bankruptcy and shuttered all of its stores. Peter was the Project Manager of our three-person project team, and he did an excellent job of keeping our team focused on its goals and on what needed to be addressed in our plans. He has a vast wealth of commercial/retail Architecture knowledge and experience, which became a very valuable asset in helping us to develop a clear and cohesive vision for our Adaptive Re-use and Business Incubator plans. As an active member of the local chapters of the AIA and the USGBC, Peter is always involved and engaged in the local Architecture/Sustainability community, and he displayed the same level of interest and enthusiasm during class lectures and project meetings while we were in SoSBAP. He participated regularly and shared his depth of knowledge with the class, adding a lot of pertinent information to complement the curriculum. Peter would be a more than worthy addition to any Architecture firm, as they would be acquiring someone with true passion and dedication to the discipline, as well as an amicable disposition. I recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone seeking to find an Architectural professional with true intelligence and a rock-solid work ethic.” July 24, 2011
