Dahlin Group Architecture Planning (DAHLIN) has a new location in Salt Lake City, Utah. Establishing a local presence positions DAHLIN to grow with our clients within the region, which is among the fastest growing regions in the US. DAHLIN Senior Vice President, Design Innovation John M. Thatch and Principal, Senior Architect Brett Bailey are leading the expansion. DAHLIN has more than 13 clients and more than 35 projects across the Rocky Mountain region, active and completed, that range from single- to multifamily, including senior living, affordable housing, and market rate, and commercial.
Thatch and Bailey are Utah licensed architects. Thatch joined DAHLIN during its first years as a champion of new thinking and pushing the envelope of design with ideas that create thoughtful, livable and economically viable communities. Bailey has been with the firm for over 20 years providing strategic project and design leadership in complex multifamily and mixed-use projects to teams across the firm, tackling issues of high density, infill housing, and neighborhood sensitivity. Both Thatch and Bailey are passionate mentors of DAHLIN staff, continually raising the level of design and execution higher in service to our clients. Their hands-on, collaborative design approach engages the client and each member of the design team throughout the creative process.
In addition to DAHLIN's diverse residential portfolio, the firm offers expertise in urban design and planning, healthcare, education, civic and commercial projects to builders, developers, businesses and public agencies. Bailey said, "Our broad experience in various types of community design and principles of wellness, inclusivity, sustainability, and site sensitivity gives us an opportunity to contribute vibrant and memorable places to the growth of this region. We are looking forward to building strong relationships with new and existing clients who are active in the Utah marketplace."
DAHLIN believes their holistic approach to design, which is rooted in placemaking and puts the health and wellness of communities at the forefront, will help the region to grow responsibly. "When in a growth environment, community design that makes places that serve people and the environment leads to more sustainable, inclusive and equitable development," said Thatch.
