Jason Powers, PE


With an architect for a grandfather, Jason was introduced to the world of design at an early age, spending many hours studying drawings, critiquing buildings, and learning the language of structure. He draws on this deep sensibility for architecture in his structural designs, and leverages his experience working in Idaho and California.

Since joining ZFA in 2008, Jason has carefully cultivated ZFA San Francisco’s residential design studio into the success that it is today and is currently using his expertise to expand the studio to ZFA’s Silicon Valley office.


    • Extensive background in high-end residential design, with deep expertise gained working on hundreds of custom residential and hospitality projects
    • Leads ZFA’s custom residential design studio project from the San Francisco and Silicon Valley offices
    • Works with premier architects and builders throughout the Bay Area

Jason is adept at leading project design teams, closely coordinating external consultants, and working with the most discerning of clients to achieve seamless integration of structure and architecture.
