Jun Soliven has over 40 years experience in the architectural design and development of a diverse range of projects, including commercial and retail facilities, single and multi-family residences, office buildings, hotels, restaurants and food service facilities, manufacturing plants and health care facilities. He specializes in the resolution of complex technical challenges often associated with projects. His work successfully integrates very different technical and programmatic requirements of a project while achieving the overall project objectives, and adhering to the client's schedule and budget parameters.

For six years, as regional Director/Principal Architect of Hamill & McKinney, a nationwide architectural/engineering firm, Soliven was responsible for handling and coordinating basic architectural services, office administration/management, and soliciting clients for the West Coast operations. His project management experience also included kitchen design, restaurant planning and fixturization. Commercial projects included restaurants, hotels, schools, shopping centers and retail stores.

While practicing in the United States, Soliven was on the project team of Wallace Floyd Ellenzweig Moore who designed the Spaceship Earth in Disneyworld, Florida and the Sohio Petroleum Complex in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. His hospital and medical facility projects with Stone Maraccini Paterson include work for the prominent Merritt Hospital in Oakland, CA and Chinle Hospital, AZ.

Having worked in the Philippines for a number of years, Soliven is familiar with the development climate, as well as the regulatory processes. Originally franchised by Ramada Hotels, he was involved in the design and management of the Manila Midtown Hotel and Commercial Complex, a 612-room hotel, considered to be the largest Ramada Hotel in 1976. He also completed projects for JG Summit, clubhouses and recreational facilities for Landco and the Hacienda Luisita.
