Peter T. Icenogle, AIA

Director of Architecture

Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies - University of Illinois
Registered Architect State of Colorado

Peter has a practical background with a diverse array of projects and delivery methods.  This background encompasses all phases of the design process from Conceptual Planning through Construction Administration and Project Closeout.  While a talented designer, his greatest strengths are in the areas of practical, ‘nuts-and-bolts’ detailing and design.  This leads to well-detailed project documents which provide for long-lasting and low maintenance facilities.  As a Project Manager, Peter has successfully led and coordinated large teams of consultants allowing projects to be completed on time and within budget.  Peter's work with BG+co. includes K-12 educational facilities, public safety buildings, detention centers, large and small commercial projects, manufacturing facilities and more. Through this experience, Peter has learned when to listen and when to lead.  This helps him to provide effective solutions for any situation which may arise throughout the course of a project.

In 1996, Roy and Pamela Blythe founded Blythe Design + co. in Grand Junction, Colorado. Brought to the western slope by the design and construction of the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center, they soon made a home and business here in the Grand Valley, embracing the small-town lifestyle while embodying big-city capabilities for various public, institutional, and commercial projects. With a combined experience of more than 80 years in specialized design and construction, Roy and Pamela delighted clients with their in-depth involvement throughout the design and construction process, honesty in fiscal responsibility, and keen eye for memorable aesthetic results. The Blythe team established an influential presence as designers of the western slope; their wisdom, creativity, and technical excellence provides the foundation and ongoing inspiration for BG + co. and our fellow community partners.
