Jay Martin has focused his career on the planning, development and design of district energy plants for large healthcare complexes, universities, metropolitan areas, airports and industry. A mechanical engineer with more than 18 years of experience, Jay enjoys asking questions to arrive at unique solutions. For him, it is about being creative and collaborating to become a trusted adviser to his clients and to inspire his teams. Jay joins Page as a Mechanical Engineering Director.
His career has evolved from pure design to project and program management. He is a believer in discretionary energy and says it is what he looks for in his colleagues and collaborators. Jay encourages everyone to question how to make things better and emphasizes that passion drives creativity. A more engaged process, he says, allows people to get beyond recipe answers to problems.
His former clients range from Princeton University to the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center. He is an alumnus of Texas Christian University and an active member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). Jay served as the ASHRAE Fort Worth Chapter President from 2009 to 2010 and led the organization to be recognized with numerous regional awards including the Golden Gavel Award for chapter of the year and the Jack Thompson Memorial Award for Chapter Leadership.
“We are extremely excited to have Jay join our Page design team,” explains Page Senior Principal Mattia J. Flabiano III. “Jay not only has a deep resume with experience in large complex central utility plants and distribution systems, but he also brings great interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate complex systems to our clients. A client already told me that Jay is ‘one of the finest engineers he has ever worked with.' This client just confirmed what we already knew about Jay. We look forward to him helping us build the best integrated engineering group in the industry.”
For more than 70 years engineering has been a critical part of Page. Our engineers are responsible for designing interdependent mechanical, electrical, plumbing, civil and structural systems for a wide range of projects around the world. The projects cross all of our core market sectors ranging from office buildings and corporate interiors to academic institutions, technology and healthcare facilities.
Page is one of the leading designers of mission-critical, cleanroom and healthcare spaces; all of which can be optimized further with good knowledge of district energy practices. Page is also very active in the strategic planning sector (master planning) for universities and other campus-style entities which has long been a career focus for Jay.
As head of the mechanical engineering team in Dallas, Jay joins Page Principal and MEP Engineering Director Dale Robinson at the helm of the office leadership. “Page is excited to have a district heating and energy distribution network expert leading our mechanical engineering department,” notes Robinson. “Jay’s knowledge and analysis capability on complex pumping systems is a great addition to the Dallas team.”
