F9 Prodcutions - Architecture Firm
Darryl Messick, Alex Gore, Lance Cayko, Jackson Hill, Fernando Abbud.
Alex (Left): Alex's construction experience, albeit not as lengthy as Lance's, comes during his time spent within the National Guard as a heavy equipment operator. But more importantly, after graduating with the highest of honors from NDSU with a Master's in Architecture (winning the Alpha Rho Chi Medal, bestowed by the faculty to the one student who best exemplifies leadership, service, and the promise of professional merit) he moved to New York to work for the world renowned architect Daniel Libeskind (designer of the Denver Art Museum, The Jewish Museum – Berlin, and The New World Trade Towers). Here Alex furthered his professional design skills by working on winning international design competitions for Seoul Korea, and Abu Dhabi. After his time in New York he continued his education in Construction Management and then joined F9 Productions managing a variety of different design projects and BIM projects.
Lance (Right): Lance is a unique design professional from the standpoint of having 12 years of hands-on construction experience working in the field as a carpenter and an independent contractor throughout North Dakota, Montana, and Idaho as well as obtaining an A.A.S. degree from NDSCS in Wahpeton, ND in Building Construction Technology, a Bachelors Degree in Environmental Design and a Masters Degree in Architecture at NDSU (winning the coveted Peter F. McKenzle Memorial Endowment Award for best thesis).
With confidence he easily has more hands-on construction experience now than most designers will ever have. This has enabled him, at a young age, to leap into sophisticated and complex designs with the utmost understanding of its constructability.
