DMR Architects has added 10 new team members in 2016, expanding its staff by nearly 33 percent as it responds to a 30 percent growth in billing during the year.
The latest additions include Daniel Salazar as project manager, Jeffrey Ingerson as project architect and Ariel Rodríguez Díaz as architect, the Hasbrouck Heights-based firm said in a news release. They will assist DMR’s work in several areas, including the rehabilitation of downtown Hackensack and its growing pipeline of residential projects.
Salazar is currently managing public-sector projects in Hackensack, including designs for the indoor Johnson Park sports facility and the expansion of the city’s recreation center, the news release said. He brings 30 years of experience to DMR, having worked on major projects throughout the U.S. in sectors such as recreation and hospitality, commercial, retail, health care, residential and education sectors.
The project manager has an architecture degree from University of Arizona.
Ingerson gained his nearly 15 years of experience at firms in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, working on residential, corporate interiors, retail and fitness and wellness center projects, DMR said. In his new role, he is supporting the firm’s growing residential pipeline of more than 600 units at projects across northern New Jersey.
He graduated from the New Jersey Institute of Technology with a bachelor of architecture degree.
As a member of the production staff, Díaz will assist on design projects in Hackensack, the news release said. He also has worked at firms in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, with experience in areas such as recreation, sports and redevelopment.
Díaz has a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico and master’s in sustainable management from New England College in New Hampshire.
“I’m happy to say that while our billing growth is exceptionally high in 2016, it is not an anomaly,” said Lloyd Rosenberg, CEO and president of DMR Architects. “It’s been our strategy for 25 years to monitor trends in construction and real estate development and then hire to address anticipated needs.
“We’re excited to see what Daniel, Jeffrey and Ariel will do in the coming years.”
