Our Team

Jennifer Brown

Jennifer Brown, Principal

Following in her father’s footsteps, Jennifer grew up on construction job sites, where she learned all about building materials, individual trades, and most importantly, how to coordinate them all.

She has an extensive background in design, art and business, interior design, and CAD technologies. She also earned, and maintains, her LEED professional credentials (LEED AP ID+C). Advanced knowledge in green building means she can design healthy, durable homes and commercial spaces that use fewer resources and produce less waste.

Her passion for color, balance and aesthetically pleasing design is evident in all her projects, and in her hobbies: home improvement projects and painting landscapes. In fact, the Decca office showcases artwork by a few members of the Decca team.

But her greatest gift is her innate talent for organization. Her job is to alleviate the stress and pressure people inevitably encounter during a building project. In doing so, she becomes intimately familiar with every detail of the project. She knows every step of the journey and effortlessly guides her clients toward the finished product.

Jennifer loves the sheer variety of Decca clients and projects — from exploring the myriad of design possibilities to the challenge of working within your budget to achieve your dream. The one constant is her client-focused approach to her work, getting to know every client personally and making sure their finished space meets their every need.

Keith Anderson, Principal

Keith has over 45 years of experience in design, building and mill work. Before operating his general contracting company for 40 years, he was a framer and cabinet maker. He founded Deuce Interiors Inc. 42 years ago, specializing in  custom mill work. Developing a team of European craftsman set their projects apart from the competition. His unique abilities have taken him all over North America.

With Decca, he focuses on his passion as a custom designer.

His creativity is expressed throughout his designs and hobbies. Whether he is blowing a piece of glass, carving or making pottery, he has a constant desire to learn new skills and explore the connection between art and all things design.

Keith embraces technology to convey his ideas. Decca was one of the first design firms in Calgary to convert from the traditional 2D AutoCAD to the Revit platform of AutoCAD. Revit is 3D software that allows the user to build the project in layers giving each client the ability to fully visualize their project. Keith’s years of hands on construction experience ensure the finished project is not only aesthetically pleasing but completely executable.

Keith strives for perfection in every finished project. His curiosity, imagination, and talent for creative solutions are integral to Decca’s custom architectural designs.
