Russell Ervin, LEED AP


Russ is a gifted designer with more than 25 years of project experience across multiple disciplines, including architecture, planning, and urban design. He has worked on a broad variety of projects throughout the southeastern United States and the Caribbean.

Russ has a keen understanding of the relationship between the buildings and site. He provides valuable insight into the integration of specific elements of the built environment into their context, which enables well-conceived resolution of complex project assignments and design issues. His understanding of architectural design elements and interpretation of regionally specific architectural typologies are important in the development of creative design solutions which reinforce an appropriate sense of place.

Russ has extensive experience in sustainable urban design and redevelopment, destination resort and community planning, mixed-use planning and design, and retail/commercial development. He is a LEED-Accredited Professional (LEED-AP) and a member of the Urban Land Institute (ULI), the Institute of Classical Architecture (ICA), the U. S. Green Building Council (USGBC) North Florida Chapter, and the Cornerstone Commercial & Industrial Development Task Force (CIDTF) for the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce. He also is an active participant with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and is chairperson of the Building Committee for Shepherd of the Woods Lutheran Church.
