Senior Project Manager
Andy Madonna, is a Senior Project Manager who joined Mirador Group in 2012. He has 14 years of progressively responsible experience in Architecture and sustainable design in both residential and commercial projects. Andy has the pleasure of working with team members daily to ensure a smooth process and high-quality design.
Prior to joining Mirador Group, Andy worked as an Intern Architect in the Philadelphia area for a few years before moving to South Florida graduating Summa Cum Laude with his Architecture master’s degree at Florida International University. While attending school, he was chosen to be student project manager for FIU’s School of Architecture Solar Decathlon Team in a two-year study, design & build competition held by the Department of Energy and National Renewable Energy Laboratory. https://www.solardecathlon.gov/
The net positive energy house was meticulously researched, designed, documented, and constructed in South Florida by the FIU student team lead by Andy and support staff. It was then disassembled, shipped and reconstructed on the National Mall in Washington, DC by the team to compete against 19 other teams from schools around the world. http://solardecathlon.fiu.edu/
Andy’s experience in building science and sustainable design projects combined with his education and technical skills have made him an integral member of the Mirador Group. He believes the environment with which we build is valuable and can greatly affect our future lifestyle. “Designing for generations of use is important, and it begins with knowledge and responsibility from everyone. By creating an environment that is clean, clear, and therefore is calming and pleasing; we will ultimately inherit those same characteristics.”
Andy obtained a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies from Philadelphia University in 2004 and a Masters of Architecture from Florida International University in 2011 where he received the Tau Sigma Delta Academic Excellence award, the AIA Miami award of Excellence in Student Design, and the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce Sustainable South Florida award for education and outreach.
To unwind he enjoys tinkering on cars, hiking or walking in Houston’s wonderful parks, swimming with his two young kids, and playing with his two dogs.
