When Senior Architect Mark Gier was very young, he and his brothers accidentally burned down a barn. His parents couldn’t have known that the boys’ punishment—helping to rebuild it—would lead to a career that has spanned a quarter century.
Mark has worked on a huge variety of projects for CSHQA, including military and government buildings, retail, apartments, education buildings, and more. His role is to coordinate his team and keep each project moving forward. He was on the team that restored and renovated the Idaho State Capitol, which included many historical finishes and small details, and was one of the most high-profile projects of his career.
A kayaker, Mark has already set his sights on teaching the next generation how to navigate Idaho’s whitewater—his daughter.
