|The name "Centre Sky" is a term of ours that originates from Native American beliefs. Certain Native American cultures believe they traveled from the underworld and came to be in the world we know today. Once they reached this world they traveled all points of the compass and found "The Middle Place" or "The Center". In the process of returning to the surface, the path created a Z-axis of connection of earth (center) and sky, thus the name Centre Sky.
Centre Sky Architecture believes quality, communication and environmental sensitivities are the key issues involved in serving both the client and the environment. Centre Sky makes use of the latest technology to aid in the communication and conveyance of design. The use of native and natural materials are implemented where possible. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning recommendations are implemented as to minimize damage to the environment, yet address economical issues. It is the plan and desire that Centre Sky retain and earn a further reputation for quality, innovative and responsive design as well as environmental preservation. Centre Sky's environmental philosophies are in-line with those adopted by the Rocky Mountain Institute. Rocky Mountain Institute is a nonprofit research and educational foundation with a vision across boundaries. Its mission is to foster the efficient and sustainable use of resources as a path to global security. The Institute creates, and helps individuals and the private sector to practice, new solutions to old problemsmainly by harnessing the problem-solving power of market economics and of advanced techniques for resource efficiency.

Jamie attended Montana State University where he earned his Bachelor's degree in Architecture. While attending college he became involved in the theoretical aspects of Native American Architecture. The theory was to devise an approach in theoretical design, in which site and design become one. In this theory the design interacts and becomes one with the sky. This theory will be intertwined with the functional needs of the specific client. A seven-year employment history in architecture has provided Jamie with a broad background in planning, design and construction. During this time Jamie has worked with many clients and contractors in a variety of project types including high-end housing, institutional, museums, higher education and commercial projects. Jamie has daily experience with ACAD R14, ACAD2000 and has also worked extensively with ACAD R12 and ACAD R13. Jamie's most significant talent lies in his ability to conceptualize and implement complex, innovative space and design, as can be seen by viewing the gallery.
Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
