Dan is a longtime advocate of formalized quality systems that help our organization work more effectively, efficiently, and collaboratively. It is his efforts as Director of Quality that have enabled Ghafari to maintain our ISO 9001 certification year after year, which recognizes not only our dedication to our tried and true quality methods but also our adoption of new practices that improve the way we operate.

Dan is always seeking opportunities for improvement, and he is committed to making sure that the best practices and lessons learned from our most challenging projects are built into our quality management processes. In addition to his responsibilities as Director of Quality, he also manages our Dearborn-based architectural team, overseeing document production, providing quality assurance, managing resources, coordinating project staffing, and mentoring junior team members.

With over 40 years of architectural engineering and project management experience, Dan has applied his passion for technical excellence to projects around the globe that encompass a broad spectrum of building types, including aviation, corporate, education, government, and industrial / manufacturing facilities.
