For more than 26 years, Ron Melvin led the architecture branch of Avalon Engineering, a Cape Coral architecture, planning and civil engineering firm. He is grateful for the opportunities Southwest Florida has provided throughout this time of regional growth and respects the need to carefully incorporate environmental sustainable strategies for future generations.
Ron combines insight and experience with a broad vision, natural curiosity and most importantly, the ability to listen to and see from the perspective of his clients. His interest in architecture began at an early age and by 9th grade Ron was enrolled in design and drafting programs in the Miami-Dade school system. Prior to attending college he was mentored by local architects Daniel F. Burner Jr. and Rick McCormack. Ron graduated with High Honors from Auburn University in Alabama and returned home to Florida to begin his career with W.R. Frizzell Architects. He has been a licensed architect in Florida since 1988 and became a LEED AP® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional) in 2008.
He has been an integral part of the Southwest Florida community, volunteering his time with Boy Scouts of America, Rotary International and the South Fort Myers Food Pantry Coalition.
