BRUCE D. JUDD, FAIA, RESUME
Historic Preservation architecture wasn’t an established field of practice when Bruce D. Judd, FAIA, co-founded Architectural Resources Group in San Francisco in 1980. Thirty years later, Bruce is considered a pioneer in the field and has a national reputation as a thought leader, experienced practitioner and financial pragmatist. Over the years his clients have learned that when they want their preservation projects to succeed, Bruce’s skills are essential to ensure that the project proceeds, from the initial planning processes through construction, with professionalism and integrity, while also meeting the project team’s goals. Whether it is guiding the project team through the myriad of governmental agencies at the local, state and national level, or navigating a project team through the internal political environment, Bruce’s projects consistently result in satisfied clients. His development projects are profitable to the investors, yet do not compromise the sustainable concepts and ideas that form the foundation of his career.
Bruce has directed more than 250 planning, rehabilitation, and expansion projects for architecturally significant buildings throughout the west and is a nationally recognized expert in his field. He has led rehabilitation and new construction projects for library, cultural, and performing arts facilities, including the award-winning master plan and completed renovation and additions to the A. K. Smiley Library in Redlands. He has also directed high-profile projects, including the repair and restoration of the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park, seismic retrofit for the block-square Beaux-Arts style City Hall in Pasadena, and restoration work at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego.
Bruce brings extensive experience with the application of The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Preservation. For eight years he was a President-appointed Expert Member of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP), the federal agency that oversees and advises on national preservation matters, and recently participated on the Committee for Preservation and Security for the White House and Capitol.
For nine years he was a member of the Board of Trustees of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Bruce meets The Secretary of the Interior’s Historic Preservation Professional Qualifications Standards in Architecture, Historic Architecture, Architectural History, and History.
