Mike Scarlett has been in the custom home building industry for over 30 years. His interest for the industry sparked in his freshman days of high school in 1975 where he began working for a prominent custom homebuilder in Laguna Beach, California. His knowledge of all phases of construction grew with this builder for a period of 10 years. It was then in 1985 that he became a licensed general contractor for The State of California and decided to begin working for himself.
During his tenure in San Diego, Mr. Scarlett was involved in all aspects of remodeling and custom home building. He was also the preferred contractor for commercial projects for the Colachis Co. which owned several high-end resorts and country clubs. These projects included renovating rooms, lobbies, and ballrooms. His custom home experience in San Diego, La Jolla, Del Mar, and Rancho Santa Fe involved homes ranging from 3000 – 6000 sq. ft. in a variety of styles for investors and homeowners. In 2004 he moved to Texas to take advantage of the high growth rate and abundance of land.

Dan's first Green Design was the Ray Nasher 4 building known as NorthPark 4, a 20 story high rise designed for energy efficiency in 1981 using chilled water storage or what is now known as "ice storage".  Water was chilled during the summer at night and stored in large underground tanks to avoid daytime "peak demand" electric costs which were 2 to 3 times normal rates in that decade.

Dan went on to travel nationwide speaking at engagements on energy efficiency for datacenters which comprised Uninterruptable Power Supplies, Short Term Power Sources and Cooling Systems which are where the greatest losses occur next to the computers themselves.
