Howdy, I am Ivan Gonzalez, Project Manager at TAB Associates since 2016. I began life in the metropolitan mountainous city of Monterrey, Mexico and had the privilege of being raised in The Lone Star State, Texas. After attending Texas A&M University and graduating with a Bachelors of Environmental Design, I spent some time working with a medium sized commercial architecture firm in Houston.
An opportunity for a lifestyle change presented itself and I jumped on it like a dog on a bone! I have been in the Valley a few months shy of two years and have been loving it! Being able to learn and contribute to the growth of the valley has been an incredible experience and I feel very fortunate to be working with committed, talented and imaginative minds (both in our office and the teams we collaborate with). Since moving to Colorado I have been enjoying this thing people around here call “snow”, as well as trying to indulge in the lush Colorado forests by way of camping and hiking. During college I got to experience living in Barcelona and got acquainted with several other European countries and cultures, and ever since then I try to keep traveling to new cities and places (foreign and within the US) to continue expanding my knowledge of other cultures and the human interaction across the world.
Since working at TAB Associates I have been able to work on different building types that have greatly contributed to my building construction experience. Upon first arriving at TAB I helped work on some Wendy’s restaurants located in the greater Denver area as well working in construction administration for the remodels of some of the Roaring Fork’s middle and elementary schools and the relocation of ECSD Transportation and I.T. departments in Gypsum. In addition to this I have also worked on a small, off-the-grid cabin near Piney Lake in Vail. Most recently my time has been going into the Red Sandstone Parking Garage that will be opening for the Town of Vail at the end of the year. It is an exciting time to be working at TAB with a variety of project types and clients we are working on, it is extremely exciting to be able to contribute to the development, growth and physical change of the Eagle Valley. Stop on by and say “Hi!” anytime!
