Mazzetti adds two key professionals, Massoud Safaee and Dave Golner, to position technology design and consulting as an integral part of its integrated building systems solutions. The new additions provide Mazzetti competitive advantage via their depth of experience and geographical locations, to serve clients nationwide.
The new technology team hit the ground running, gathering for a retreat in Mazzetti’s San Francisco headquarters within the first week of assembling. Quickly assessing each addition’s specific expertise, along with that of current Senior Technology Associate Brian Johnson in the Nashville, Tennessee office, senior management was highly encouraged. Thirteen-year Mazzetti veteran Jon Inman, Principal and Pacific Regional Lead, stated his excitement: “The depth of experience that we’ve been able to add to our technology team is extremely exciting. We have some real opportunities to continue our technology service line and take it to the next level.”
Massoud Safaee is the new Technology Business Development and Pacific Regional Lead, working from Mazzetti’s Irvine, California office. Safaee looks to expand technology services to include in all building system solutions. “We are offering integrated solutions for building systems, rather than traditional MEP silos designing individual systems. Technology must be considered an integral part of the building systems, not an add-on feature.”
Safaee has a 20-year proven track record in technology, specializing in healthcare design. Most recently, he was an Account Executive at Johnson Controls Inc., leading the largest medical center accounts and client development. He is both a prominent speaker and published writer in the industry and looks forward to continue his work under the Mazzetti brand.
Dave Golner, the new Technology Discipline Lead, working from Mazzetti’s Seattle, Washington office, is primed to elevate internal infrastructure to meet and exceed national standards. “We have to raise the level of our technology expertise company-wide, so that we become more integrated in our project delivery. We can help set the tone to strategically position Mazzetti per industry needs and to lead the industry in delivering the highest quality services to our customers.”
Prior to Mazzetti, Golner was the Director of Technology at Arnold & O’Sheridan, a multi-discipline consulting engineering firm in Wisconsin, and a Senior project Manager at Sparling in Seattle, Washington. His move to the Pacific Northwest was catalyzed by healthcare technology opportunities. “From my own healthcare facility experience, I’m encouraged by Mazzetti’s approach to the marriage of facility and technology systems to ensure they play well together.”
Mazzetti’s mission is to make the world a better place by creating better environments. Using foursight, Mazzetti brings client visions to life with an integrated four-lens approach to engineering: research and policy, planning, finance, and project delivery. The firm is a global provider of mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and technology engineering design and consulting; commissioning; equipment planning; and sustainability services—building innovative solutions, reliable facilities, and sustainable environments throughout healthcare, mission critical, science and technology, higher education, aviation, and other markets.
As an employee-owned benefit corporation with over 50 years of service in the industry, Mazzetti’s positive impact spans 20 countries around the globe. On each project, the firm integrates the best of current processes and technologies with localized community needs and resource constraints, to deliver lasting design. Mazzetti has offices in San Francisco, Irvine, and Sacramento, CA; Portland, OR; Seattle, WA; Nashville, TN; Denver, CO; Baton Rouge and New Orleans, LA; and Houston, TX.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
