NCARB, Principal Architect and General Contractor, Dalkita Architecture/Construction
Seminar: Panel 3
Scott attended the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign where he received the degree Master of Architecture. Scott has near 30 years’ experience in the design and building industry. Recognizing the disconnect between architectural design and construction, Scott began a design-build practice. He designed and built high-end award-winning and often historic residential and small commercial projects. Today Scott, and his wife Colleen, own Dalkita. In 2005, Scott was asked to design and build Downslope Distillery, in Centennial, CO. Since then, Scott has become a nationally recognized expert in distillery design and construction. He has led Dalkita to design, build, or consult in the design of almost 50 distilleries in Colorado, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin and elsewhere. Some notable distillery projects include Stranahan’s (CO), CopperMuse (CO), Elevation 5003 (CO), Triple Eight (MA), Ghost Coast (GA), Twisted Sun (FL), Restless Spirits (MO), Hanson of Sonoma (CA) and New World (UT). Scott provides valuable educational content to distillers looking to build or expand facilities and to regulators who review submitted designs. His recent public speaking appearances include: American Distilling Institute's conventions in Seattle & San Diego, American Craft Spirits Association conventions in Denver, Austin, and Chicago, and the Colorado Fire Marshals Association in Northglenn, CO and Copper Mountain, CO.
