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
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,

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance). Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here
