Honoring Jonathan Allgaier: Brunswick Crossing Architect and Structural Engineer

-9/21/12-

Many people come together to build planned communities. Architects, landscape designers, engineers, builders, developers, customer service and marketing professionals. Each plays an integral role helping to bring the vision of a well planned community to life. For larger communities such as Brunswick Crossing this process can span a professional’s entire career – from the conception of the dream to closing the last home. The team that works on these projects spends countless hours together working to bring that vision to life and through the trials and successes of the project grows to consider each other friends and family. Brunswick Crossing has lost one of their family this week, architect and structural engineer Jonathan Allgaier. Jonathan was the oldest son of Dr. Wayne and Vicki Allgaier, born on October 24, 1969, in Washington,D.C. He is survived by his wife of 20 years, Tina, and 4 children: Tyler, Spencer, Garrett, and Kristyn. He was 42 years old.

Jonathan was integral to the planning, design and success of Brunswick Crossing. Not only was he an incredibly talented engineer and architect, Jonathan was from Brunswick and cherished the community. Jonathan graduated from Brunswick High School class of 1987. He received his bachelor’s degree at Brigham Young University in 1994, he went on to earn a double master’s degree in architecture and structural engineering at North Carolina State University. Jonathan established his own firm, Allgaier Structural Engineering and Fusion Architecture Planning Design. His projects have included the new Hood College gymnasium (as structural engineer), the Frederick County Board of Education building (structural engineer), the Brunswick Fire Hall (architect and S.E.), and the Brunswick Crossing Community Center (architect and S.E.). He was also a structural engineer for the 2010 Winter Olympics, as well as for at least ten Super Bowls.

Jonathan’s work can not only be seen in the large signature buildings in Brunswick Crossing  including the Community Center and the Brunswick Fire Station, but also his eye for even the smallest of details. His intimate knowledge of Brunswick, his home town,  lead to connecting every street name in Brunswick Crossing to Brunswick’s rich heritage.

We are honored to call Jonathan not only a colleague, but also a dear friend. In honor of Jonathan, the development staff at Pleasants Development will be observing Jonathan’s contribution to Brunswick Crossing and the Brunswick community by placing a black bunting on the Brunswick Crossing community monument Saturday, September 22. When you walk the streetscapes of Brunswick Crossing, please take a moment to pause and admire their beauty in honor of our dearly departed friend Jonathan Allgaier.
