Getting Communities to Connect – Aaron Pick, Allen Construction

In 805conversations by Mark Sylvester

How do we live with Mother Nature?

A house is a personal thing.”Aaron Pick, COO, Allen Construction

Aaron Pick, the Chief Operating Officer of award-winning Allen Construction, in Santa Barbara, had an engaging conversation with us, covering areas from LEED construction, the rebuilding of Montecito to his winding journey to Santa Barbara.

Dennis Allen, the founder of the firm, is a pioneer in LEED methods of construction and is a thought-leader as it applies to sustainable building. Aaron focuses on growing the business and continuing to advocate for zero net energy projects.

There were many exciting side-stories during this episode that will give you deep insight into what it’s like running an independent operation here on the South Coast. Allen was honored with a California Small Business award in 2015. Note: It was at that ceremony in Sacramento that 805’s host, Mark Sylvester, met Dennis, as introNetworks also was there to be recognized for the 805connect project (the organization that produces this show).
