Matthew Davis, P.E.
As the newest senior engineer to join Lenity Architecture in the Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Department (MEP), Matthew Davis has the potential to impact every project we do. Drawing on 20+ years’ experience in electrical engineering, Matthew coordinates the MEP portion of the construction administration process for all our clients’ projects. He plays a key role in the success of the MEP team. As the lead supervisor for the department, Matt meticulously reviews all drawings, while only stamping electrical drawings (for now). However, none of this would be possible without the expertise of the entire MEP team.
With so many of Lenity’s projects in multiple states and provinces, Matt is up for the challenge to create “bullet-proof designs” – where any jurisdiction wouldn’t require design changes. Excited by the challenge that projects in a variety of stages in the design process offers, he appreciates how it can impact the MEP portion of the project. With a background in heavy industrial, municipal organizations and Global Consulting, Matt is well-equipped designing electrical systems for various types of buildings. Impressed by the sheer number of projects Lenity completes, he feels up to the task of determining the best solution to each project’s situation.
Matt found a new, meaningful avenue for MEP Design when he joined Lenity– senior housing. When asked what drew him to Lenity Architecture he was impressed by Lenity’s culture of collaboration and putting relationships first. With previous experience with large, global companies, Matt welcomed the refreshing, personable approach to working with the client.
When he’s not busy reviewing drawings and submittals, he enjoys spending time with his family (a wife of almost 33 years and three adult sons – the oldest now married and the younger identical twins – all three successful professionals). He’s most passionate about his new role as grandpa where he gets to dote on his very new granddaughter. In addition, he works on improving his golf game and .45 CAL pistol target accuracy to unwind.
