Jeff Cockrell - project manager (2013-present)

Jeff came to modern by chance, but its by no coincidence that we wanted to keep him around.  He had run a successful design and construction company for 5 years before he showed up at our offices to buy paper and ask if he could collaborate on a job with us.  Now, not only does Jeff help manage our projects, but he joins the team at the earliest phase possible. He usually starts during the project analysis and programming phase, then begins to help generate a detailed construction proposal using cost breakdowns and proposals from our bid documents.  This collaboration opens up the project to further scrutiny and leads to creating detailed construction documents used during the process by all of our in-house artisans and contractors.

Once the project is complete Jeff performs a post project analysis while creating a detailed "as-built" plan, To make sure all expectations were met and exceeded, he details his findings in a report on how we could do better in the future and where we excelled.


Alex Whitaker | AIA (2007-2009 & 2013-present)

Alex began working with modern as a project manager in 2007 and took 5 years away to get his Architecture license.  During the process he worked and traveled through New York, Dripping Springs, and Wimberly.  Now that Alex has rejoined our team, he adds a new dimension of design and keeps us at the forefront of design technology.  Using Revit, AutoCad, ScetchUp and Vectorworks we are able to render navigable models and create real time changes to CD's.


Jonathan Ericson | IPSSA (2016-present)

Jonathan has been in the pool service industry for over 10 years & came to us with the desire to expand his intensive service knowledge into constructibility & feasibility analysis.  Having first hand knowledge of what mechanical manufacturers and designs work best in the industry gives us an edge over the competition, especially when it comes to reducing service calls and increasing the clients enjoyment of the overall project.  We joke that our clients like to invite Jonathan over, not just to fix issues, but rather to enjoy his company while he programs interesting scenes into their automation systems.
