Douglas H. Lowe, AIA, LEED AP
President

An architect by degree, Doug specializes in the intricate detailing of architectural programming and facilities master planning. He brings to his work a refreshing, pragmatic approach, which clarifies the sometimes seemingly ambiguous interlacing relationships between the many functions of a proposed facility and the people who will utilize that space. His methods enable the client to explore the definite along with the “What Ifs” and take advantage of his extensive experience as a resource and a soundboard.  Throughout his 39 year career, he has led the programming process for more than 1,000 projects comprised of a variety of higher education, corporate, municipal, and government clients. In 1992, Doug founded Facility Programming and Consulting and continues to lead as the firm’s president. He has spoken at a myriad of state as well as national conferences and is a recognized expert in his field. Doug received his Master of Architecture from Clemson University in 1976.

Bryan Sibille
Director of San Antonio Operations, Senior Facility Programmer and Laboratory Planner

Bryan specializes in interfacing with the facility owners, users, architects and consultants to understand facility needs.

Bryan’s knowledge and experience extend from project planning to program management and the construction of facilities. His “hands-on” experience differentiates him from many other planners and programmers.  His work in the field gives him an edge in understanding of the overall planning trends and helps in determining client needs. Prior to joining Facility Programming, Bryan planned facilities worldwide for firms including Fisher Scientific and Windsor Workspaces.
