Eric Schmidt AAIA, CPHC®, LEED Green Assoc.

Architect in Training
Eric found his way to architecture through anthropology and archaeology with an intense interest in how people build and the many ways they use their natural resources. After completing his Bachelor of Arts at Whitman College he continued his training at the University of Oregon earning a Master of Architecture degree with a Certificate in Technical Teaching in Architecture.

At Oregon, Eric had the opportunity to work with the Stellar Apartments and published findings on the energy performance of the first affordable, multi-family passive house in the United States. The Passive House Building Energy Standard promoted by Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) is the most rigorous building energy standard in the world. Eric earned his credentials as a Certified Passive House Consultant (CPHC) and has committed himself to high performance buildings and evidence based design. The combination of environmentally responsive, sustainable, and socially conscious architecture embodied by High Plains Architects ethos was a perfect match with Eric’s own.

Eric is new to the region but grew up in the mountains and waters of Washington state and looks forward to exploring Montana. Always the Boy Scout, Eric hopes to volunteer his time with local non-profits and give back to the many community organizations that fostered his love of the outdoors, dedication to civic involvement, and passion for learning.

CPHC® is a certification mark of Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) used under license.
