Speaker Bio
Mr. Fredlund joined Cooper Carry in 1981. With more than 40 years experience in
architecture, project management, and construction on a wide range of institutional
and private sector projects, his responsibilities include managing projects in the Higher
Education, and Science + Technology practice groups at Cooper Carry. He is also
responsible for mentoring the practice group staff on the details of quality design, means
and methods of construction, materials, documentation, and construction administration.
He is an in-residence technical resource on building envelope, watertightness, and
creating quality architecture.
Building envelope design is his passion, and focuses on the craftsmanship and
workmanship techniques necessary to construct these building types. These buildings,
while designed to be beautiful to look at, they also need to be airtight, watertight, and
energy efficient.

Georgia Institute of Technology. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects
(AIA), and is a LEED Accredited Professional by USGBC (LEED AP).
