Jason Puestow

AIA NCARB CSI CCCA | Construction, Religious, Civic

Early on, Jason knew architecture was the right fit for him. He grew up in a construction environment where he discovered his passion for building. What he didn’t expect was a passion to positively affect the way people live, work, play, learn, worship, and retire to develop. He knows it is a large responsibility to create a space that will have a large impact on people’s lives, but also wants to make sure that the buildings are built so that they will last a lifetime.

In 2005, Jason joined the PRA team and today is a Partner.  He oversees the firm’s Construction Administration Department and many other technical areas including our Quality Assurance Review process and is the leader of the Religious Studio.  He is passionate about developing projects that improve the environment and the lives of the people. Jason is inspired when he can visualize a space, foresee how each element will fit, and then be constructed.

As a partner at PRA, Jason listens to those he is working with to develop solutions that are meaningful, long-lasting, and logical.  To him, it is powerful to take something imaginary and see it become a reality.

As a leader and mentor, Jason is always looking for ways to improve his knowledge and those around him. On projects, Jason takes every opportunity to learn something new. There are always unique aspects or challenges he tries to overcome, so he can exceed his clients’ expectations and take the lessons learned to the next project.  Outside of the office, he teams up with local schools to encourage students’ interest in the architectural field.  Jason also serves on the Board of Directors for the Wisconsin Architect’s Foundation.  He strives to provide insightful advice and open doors for aspiring architects.
