See How We're Responding to Covid-19
Every other week we highlight a member of our CGS team. Let's get to know Brett Winterberg.
Years at CGS?
What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
An architect I worked with told me, “If the biggest argument you have with your girlfriend is her falling asleep while watching a movie, you should marry her immediately.”
What do you like most about working with CGS?
There’s an old saying that the people you work with really do determine how much you enjoy your job. I think about that sometimes when we have design teams working around the clock to meet a seemingly impossible deadline. We have one of the most intelligent, creative, and colorful cast of characters you could find anywhere who really care not only about the projects but each other as well. There is a strong collaborative dynamic at CGS where everyone’s contributions are incorporated into the final product. Whether it is an amazing building design, an NCAA bracket, sports outing or a tour of projects under construction, the CGS team genuinely enjoys being together.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
I have a twin brother! In college many of my cohorts in the architecture program thought that I would deliberately ignore them when out and about on campus, when it was actually my brother who had grown tired of explaining to disbelieving people that he wasn’t me. If they chanced to meet us together they would always ask if he did half of my work in the studio. That mystery persists. And even to this day people still mix us up when we’re together.
