Leaders that help talent shine

DEBORAH TAN LUCKING, AIA, LEED AP BD+C

Senior Associate, Director of Sustainability

To help an idea take form; and then to experience it as actual spaces, to touch the building…for me, that is the best reason to practice architecture.

Since joining Fentress Architects in 1996, Deborah has focused on civic and cultural projects. Increasingly aware of the impact these buildings have on the environment and the community, she led the effort to solidify the firm’s sustainability approach. Deborah collaborates with the various project teams to integrate sustainable design into each project and ensures there is alignment with the project’s vision, objectives, and institutional mission.

As Fentress’ Director of Sustainability, Deborah has managed over 7,000,000 sq. ft. of LEED projects. She is a member of the Alliance of American Museums (AAM) Environment and Climate Network; the US Green Building Council’s working group for LEED for Airports; and AIA Denver’s steering committee for its Resiliency Knowledge Community.
