FitzGerald is pleased to announce that the firm has opened an office in Denver, Colorado. The new location bolsters FitzGerald’s nationwide reach and capitalizes on local expertise and boots-on-the-ground to serve new and existing clients seeking to do business in Denver and the Front Range, as well as the Southwest United States, California, and Texas.
“Building a physical presence in Colorado is a big step for our firm and reiterates our commitment to offering our services to clients from coast to coast,” said Mike DeRouin, president of FitzGerald. “Remote/virtual collaboration has come a long way in recent years, but there is no substitute for local knowledge and boots on the ground in the Rockies and all things westward. We’re proud to make Denver our second home market and develop our own blueprint for national growth.”
Leading the Denver office is Adam Berkelhamer, AIA—an associate principal with FitzGerald since 2021. Adam heads up several multifamily project teams across the country as well as acting as one of FitzGerald’s Design Directors, who provide project design leadership and staff mentorship as stewards of the firm’s design prowess. Prior to FitzGerald Adam worked for over 25 years domestically and internationally on award-winning projects ranging from the largest roof structure in Europe (Liege-Guillemins TGV) to Class A residential developments in Chicago and Phoenix (30 West Oak, SoNo East, Domus).
He has explored multifamily design from large complexes of co-living apartments to high-end single-family residences. Most recently, Adam was the leader of his own practice based in the San Francisco Bay area, where he designed multifamily properties at all scales and collaborated with FitzGerald and other firms.
The Denver office also recently expanded with the addition of senior associate Matthew Wiedenman. Matt rejoins FitzGerald as a member of our growing Denver team with local working knowledge of Colorado’s front range and the Vail Valley in urban multifamily development, mountain resort, and luxury residential work.
Matt has a background in project management and extensive experience in multifamily housing, hospitality, senior living, recreational, adaptive reuse, and historic renovation projects—recently specializing in the use of panelized and room-scale modular construction methods to control project costs. Matt’s work experience has resulted in built work across Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Illinois with additional pursuits in Arizona and Texas.
