Steven f. gill

architect / project manager

Born and raised on the outskirts of Fort Worth, Steve grew up admiring his dad—a creative pattern maker for a precast stone manufacturer.  Guess the family genes had something to pass on….  Steve took his first mechanical drafting class in 8th grade and decided at that point he wanted to be an architect. 

He went on to graduate with his Bachelor of Architecture and Environmental Design from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1982 and was licensed in the Great State of Texas in 1992.

Steve escaped from previous firms to join the GSBS family in 2006—one where he was owner.  His interview actually happened 13 years before his actual hire date.  Since his previous firms offered: 1) nothing but churches or 2) nothing but jails, he decided maybe the wait was worth it. 

Steve’s major duties include arriving extremely early to scare away the monsters from the front porch and making the extra-leaded coffee.  However, with each copier upgrade, his sincere wish is for a new copy machine that makes the coffee in the morning.  Alas, to date that copier still does not exist.

Summer weekends are spent on the boat at a local lake with his two daughters and their friends.  Both daughters are recent college graduates, earning degrees in Nursing and Education.

Daily life is spent in the ”sticks” on 2.5 acres, where he lodges approximately 350,101 pets—as a Beekeeper.  In spite of his best efforts, he has already run out of names for all them.  Any help is appreciated.
