In the industry for 22 years, Dan has been with Alliant since 2004. Dan is one of those unassuming guys who knows a lot of stuff and has a sense of humor that sneaks up on you.
What did you do before you came to Alliant?
I guess the same as most people, took a shower, ate breakfast, emptied the dishwasher and changed the oil in my car.
I like white water kayaking and rafting as well as most outdoor activities. My most recent hobby has been remodeling my house which lately has taken precedent over playing in the water.
You know that sound that slot machines make when you win? I like that kind of music.
I played football and wrestled in college and was fortunate to have my tuition paid from an athletic scholarship. I also coached junior high wrestling and high school football. I have played most sports including full contact hickybobbing – myself and two colleagues are petitioning the Winter Olympics to accept it as a trial event.
Hired in 2009 as a service technician with a lot of prior experience, Jeff made the switch to the office in 2016 as an Account Executive. With his prior experience in the field, he brings a wealth of benefit for our service customers.
What’s your favorite food?
I have a special sandwich at the Byways Café called the Jeffwich. Just between us, it’s challah bread, roast beef, horseradish, caramelized onions and swiss..shhhhhh.
I favor alternative, but find myself listening to a lot of 90’s R&B lately.
Last vacation you took?
Took my trailer to my favorite camping spot on the Wilson River for a week and went fishing and crabbing at the coast. To me, no cell service = vacation!
Favorite movie of all time?
I like to watch NASCAR – Go Fast Ricky Bobby!
2017. This spring Alliant Systems was awarded the mechanical and plumbing scope for the Press Blocks, a large multi-family project in the Goose Hollow neighborhood of Portland. The project consists of a full block and a ½ block where the Oregonian used to house its printing facilities. The full block will be home to a 23-story multifamily building and a 4-story “Pavilion” building that will be 4 floors of office, ground floor retail, and some live/work units. All of this sits on top of 4 floors of below grade parking. The half block will be an 8-story office building with ground floor retail and a single level of below grade parking. The MEP scope of work is design/build.
Alliant Systems landed at No. 6 in the mid-size company category. This is a tremendous honor for all of us as the results are based solely on an independent employee feedback survey. We have an outstanding group of people; many of us have worked together for more than 20 years!
Alliant’s CAD and BIM group has committed to the use of SysQue software for drafting and detailing. This industry leading software allows us to build precisely detailed models which accurately reflect the final built condition of our designs. With software training completed earlier this year, we are now using these tools to enhance coordination, improve accuracy of designs, and accelerate project timelines.
Alliant was the second place winner in the 2016 SMACNA Safety Excellence Award Program for having an outstanding safety and health record in the 200,001 to 300,000 man-hour category. With a mod rate of 0.57 this year, we demonstrate every day that safety comes first!
After months of dust, remodeling, and moving we finally settled in enough to invite some company over for a little open house. Our new space turned out amazing and we enjoyed sharing it with some of our great clients and vendors. If you missed it, come by our office and we’ll show you around. We’re on the corner of NW 12th and Flanders.
We are excited to announce that our headquarters office has moved to a new location in the Pearl District. We spent the previous 13 years in Beaverton, where we added space and remodeled twice. But, finally, we needed even more space and we also wanted to be in the thick of it downtown. We’re excited to be here!
Originally built in 1927, our building gives us 20,000 sq. ft. right in the heart of the Pearl. Our location has a walking score of 99, a bike score of 97, and a whole lot of restaurants and other places nearby to go for hazelnut lattes.
Our shop is now located at 12378 NW Amberwood in Hillsboro.
Our Eugene/Springfield office remains at the same address.
Alliant Systems is pleased to announce we have expanded to open a new office in the Eugene / Springfield area. The addition of this location follows months of planning and aligns with our goals of supporting current clients and establishing new relationships. Our commitment to excellence, as well as our mission to deliver outstanding customer service, has earned Alliant the excellent reputation we enjoy today.
In August 2010, Alliant Systems became the 33rd contractor in the country and the only contractor in the Pacific Northwest to gain entry into the MSCA GreenStar Program.
MSCA STAR qualified contractors are more than just committed to excellence. They’re continually devoted to environmental stewardship. MSCA GreenStar is an exclusive designation available only to contractors who have clearly demonstrated environmental responsibility by meeting specific and arduous criteria.
Recognized by the HVAC industry’s top green building resource, the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), MSCA GreenStar was developed to advocate MSCA STAR leadership in sustainable mechanical service.
This makes Alliant the NUMBER ONE Mechanical Engineering / Construction / Service firm to work for in the region!
“Receiving this award is especially gratifying because we were chosen by people I greatly respect; our employees,” said John Rozell, Managing Partner. “Having great people tell us this is where they want to work is a real honor, and only strengthens my resolve to be the employer they all deserve.”
