  • Matt Dworak, LEED GA

    Project Manager/Senior Designer

    Matt came to the CE Group and has been with us for 11 years. Maybe it’s because of his landscaping background, or just because he’s brilliant, but Matt can get the “lay of the land” or the big picture in an instant. He also is our REVIT master and utilizes BIM (Building Information Modeling) to nail down the nuances of designing innovative mechanical systems.

    Matt is the kind of guy that will tell you just how it is in an easy-going way- always giving us the straight scoop.

    He holds a B.S. in Industrial Technology Management from Colorado State University, and is schooled in both the Uniform Plumbing Code, and International Plumbing Code. Accolades include

  • Nancy D’Rosario, RS

    Business Manager

    For those who aren’t familiar with the designation RS - it stands for Rock Star. Nancy is the glue that holds the whole team together. Her job is to take care of everything that running a business entails so everyone else can have laser focus on your project. She has been working in the Architect/Engineering/Contracting world for close to two decades and could write a book about how to make things work- in any kind of situation or economy.

    Over her tenure, Nancy has learned the best ways to connect with potential clients, do all the background work to keep them, and the easy personality to make them friends. Anyone lucky enough to deal directly with Nancy knows they’ll get superb care. Those clients who don’t interact with her can rest assured she’s keeping the engine primed and finely tuned. That way all the geeky folks can do what they do best!

    Her geek status is only slightly behind her rock star status. Nancy holds a B.S. in Accounting from Maryville University of Saint Louis, and an A.S. in Accounting from Central Missouri State University, where of course, she was in the Honor Society.

  • Erika Cole, EIT, LEED GA

    Project Engineer

    Erika came to the CE Group fresh out of the University of Wyoming Architectural Engineering Program, where she also worked as an Engineering Intern for the University.   She was extremely active on campus having served as the UW Chapter ASHRAE President, Architectural Engineering Institute UW Chapter Vice President, UW Engineering Fund for Enrichment Board Chairman and Architectural Engineering Representative and having held a national membership in The USGBC.  She was one busy pup…and she’s still going strong.

    Erika has a dogged work ethic that is nearly impossible to keep up with.  She is quick to learn new concepts and digs deep to understand all the parameters of a project prior to project kickoff.  She easily fits in to the culture at The CE Group and is a true team player, both internally and with the external project team.

    Erika holds a BS from the University of Wyoming in Architectural Engineering with a Mechanical Emphasis.  She is currently an Engineer in Training (EIT) and LEED Green Associate.
