7GAE Hires Military Projects Expert as Team Lead for $50M Business




-Industry Veteran Brings 35 Years of Experience-


August 2, 2018 – Kalamazoo, MI – Seven Generations Architecture & Engineering, the premier tribally owned, 8(a) and HUBZone certified architecture and engineering company, is pleased to announce Daniel Heaton has joined the firm as a senior project architect. Heaton started with Seven Generations A+E on June 4th and is based in the company’s Kalamazoo, MI headquarters.

“My passion for working on Native American and government projects has paired perfectly with Seven Generation A+E’s expertise as a tribally-owned and 8(a)-certified firm,” said Heaton. “In the short time I have been with the company I have already jumped right into a number of complicated, detailed and rewarding projects.”

As a senior project architect, Heaton will play an integral part of Seven Generation A+E’s teams focused on military installations, including design-build and traditional design-bid-build. In his new position, Heaton will concentrate on completing mission-critical projects as part of the firm’s fast-growing government contracting business. Seven Generations A+E now has approximately $50 million in federal government capacity through the Indefinite Delivery-Indefinite Quantity program during the next five years. The firm’s government clients include General Services Administration, Indian Health Service, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Naval Facilities Engineering Command.

“When we considered the type of candidate we were looking for to fill this position, the key requirement was to find a team member who understood the intricacies and details required to successfully execute delivery on government contracts,” said Jeremy Berg, managing director, from Seven Generations A+E. “In Dan, we recognized he was the right person to join our team given his background who also possessed the requisite architecture and engineering expertise we needed.”

Prior to joining Seven Generations A+E, Heaton completed a number of architectural projects, including those for military facilities, medical process manufacturing and correctional institutions, among others. Heaton most recently worked for Prime AE Group in Columbus, Ohio, where he was a senior project architect on military and local government work. Prior to that, he worked for architectural firms throughout Ohio and Indiana.
