Nicole Roberts

Nicole Roberts

Energy and Design Alchemist: PE, LEED AP

Vision girl, creator and early associate of BBWx, Nicole is a rural enthusiast, aficionado al fútbol and mother of a three member brood of ‘cheesy smile’ faces. Her affinity for buildings and construction has grown over the decades and really began to blossom when she graduated from college with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering (with Honors).

With a concentration in structural engineering, Nicole ventured into the construction document design world but soon discovered there was more, oh so much more to the construction industry. Earning a LEED AP designation started a chain reaction to safeguard the environment for future generations while still holding true to her knack for engineering. Soon she was working for BBWx and earned the designation of BPI Building Analyst. Understanding how a building is constructed offers great advantage when analyzing energy assessment results and crawling around in attics with their own microclimates . . .

Nicole utilizes her time to fulfill LEED administration responsibilities, run the open trails, draft expertly designed construction plans, volunteer as a youth soccer coach and children’s ministry leader and assemble strategies to prosper and improve BBWx client services.
