Grant Golightly and Joe Pienezza are Design West’s newest licensed architects.

It’s not a walk in the park to become a licensed architect. In fact, Grant Golightly and Joe Pienezza have been working towards this goal for many years.

In addition to working for Design West full time, these guys put in many hours over the weekends and at night studying for the Architecture Registration Examinations. Covering everything from Programming to Construction Documentation, and everything in-between, this rigorous exam tests their knowledge, skills and abilities to practice architecture.

Drawing on their extensive experience and studying, both Grant and Joe passed the examinations.

Grant is now a licensed architect in Arizona. Joe is now licensed in two states including Colorado and Idaho.
