technical director

Mr. Poblete comes to Schrimmer Design Group (SDG) in the capacity of Director of Production & Technical Services with over twenty (20) years of experience in the Architectural Interior Design field.  In his capacity, Mr. Poblete has two (2) primary responsibilities: one (1) of which is insure that all construction documents leaving SDG have been reviewed by him for quality control purposes; and secondly to take on Projects whereby the design intent requires a comprehensive set of construction drawings that necessitate close coordination with the Design Team, are intricate in nature by the virtue of the design and require complex detailing in order to convey and execute the design. 

At SDG we believe that a comprehensive set of closely coordinated contract documents are vital to the project process.  They must convey the design intent to the Contractor, insuring that the Bidding Process is not complicated by an unnecessary amount of RFI’s, makes it easier to level the Bids, and reduces the number of potential change orders a Client may be subjected to.  Mr. Poblete takes great pride in insuring that to the best of our abilities all of the contract documents that leave SDG’s offices meets these stringent requirements.

Mr. Poblete has worked for a number of well known design organizations over the years having spent a combined eight (8) years with The Switzer Group in two (2) different employment stints with them and another seven (7) years with Cannon Design here in New York. 

Mr. Poblete is a Registered Architect in the Philippines and a member of the United Architects of the Philippines (UAP) where he graduated from the University of Santo Tomas with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture.
