Brant Fetter, AIA, CGBP

Brant has more than 18 years experience in the architectural and construction industry. Brant has been the owner and principal architect at Studio Fetter Architecture for a number of years, specializing in sustainable design for residential, commercial, educational, and mixed use projects, and as Brant’s positive and collegial management style fosters highly productive teamwork with everyone from clients to contractors – and he credits much of his success to the valuable contributions of the sterling professionals with whom he has collaborated.

Brant has worked on a variety of architectural projects including IMAX theaters, hotels (150~200 rooms), assisted living facilities (50-100 beds), mixed-use projects, large shell (and tenant improvement) historic renovation, grade schools, colleges, customer service centers for PG&E, and AC Transit, detention facility improvements, cellular tower installations, and a large heliport at the Grand Canyon. Preceeding the legalization of recreational cannabis, Brant has evolved into a leader at the firm in the development of the cannabis business sector. Brant has designed and managed the teams working on more than a half a million square feet of cannabis cultivation space, cannabis dispensaries, processing and extraction laboratories, and distribution facilities.

Brant is an expert on the principles of energy-efficient design as they relate to compliance with California’s Title 24 energy code, as well as programs such as the California Solar Initiative. Incorporating his practical experience with structural systems and energy efficiency early in a project helps to greatly streamline the design process.

Brant is a certified Green Building Professional, and is the former chair of the City of Richmond California Design Review Board. He is also a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
