Robert W. Shearer
Project Management, Architect NCARB, HERS Rater
After earning his architecture license in 2003, Rob worked for local Cleveland architects and developers, primarily on commercial projects. After working in commercial development for several years, however, he realized that his heart just was not in it. Rob has always had a passion for energy efficient home design and construction and wanted to focus his career down that path. He eventually became the Program Coordinator for a major midwestern electrical utility’s new home energy efficiency incentive program, where he delighted in working with home builders across the state, helping them improve the quality and energy efficiency of their product. During this time, he took the opportunity to become a HERS (Home Energy Rating System) rater and expanded his knowledge of building science and energy efficiency. Unfortunately for Ohio home builders, changes in Ohio law halted this incentive program in 2014. Rob joined evoDOMUS soon after, excited to find a place where his interests in beautiful modern design and extremely energy efficient home construction come together as core business principles. It was a perfect fit!
When not at work, Rob loves to spend as much time as possible outside with his wife and three sons. He is a wild foods enthusiast and can often be found foraging and preparing wild greens and fungi at his cabin in the Allegheny National Forest region of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
