Jeffrey H. DeGregorio, AIA, LEED AP

Jeff initially joined Payette in 1998 and has led some of the firm’s largest and most complex academic research projects for MIT, Harvard University and Cornell University. Recently, Jeff led the programmatic master plan and design of over 680,000 SF of fit-out for a ground up graduate university focused on innovation, entrepreneurship and engineering research outside of Moscow, Russia for the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology.

Jeff has been an integral member of numerous award-winning architectural projects particularly focused on adaptive reuse including both Cornell University’s Kimball Hall Renovation and Harvard University’s Sherman Fairchild Renovation, which were recognized as the Renovated Lab of the Year projects. Jeff has proven to possess a rare balance of design management, mentoring and prototypical design thinking, which he has applied to both high technology projects at a large scale and carefully crafted small projects.

Jeff is particularly focused on the intersection of education and architecture. During his early years at Payette, Jeff developed the firm’s young designer educational program which ultimately earned Payette the AIA IDP Firm of the Year Award in 2002. Since that time Jeff remains invested in working with young staff to further their understanding of how buildings are made and the potential for innovation that exists within every moment. Jeff also won the AIA Young Architect’s Award in 2005.
