Who We Are and What We Believe In

We believe being creative about saving energy (and therefore, saving you money) is an amazingly important part of residential and commercial buildings, and we feel fortunate that we’re able to help owners and everyone in the design and construction industry make our world a slightly better place.

For most people, engineering can seem a little “dry” and “picky”. So, while everyone here at DMA Engineering does super-cool stuff like extended travel, mountain biking, rock climbing, car racing and skiing, our presence is to make the world a better place by providing efficient systems.  We take efficient to mean both our designs and how we run the business.

DMA Engineering is a progressive firm that works hard to balance life and work, and believes our projects should be as unique and interesting as our associates. Since we support the idea of humans having a smaller carbon footprint, a flexible work environment.

We are members of ASHRAE, AIA and the Colorado Green Building Guild.

Steven started DMA Engineering because he felt he could make a difference in the world through his engineering talents: By designing high quality renewable energies for residential and commercial buildings.

Mr. Forrester is a Colorado native who grew up in the Washington Park neighborhood. While obtaining his undergraduate Mechanical Engineering degree at the University of Colorado at Denver, he worked as a carpenter. This early construction experience has given Mr. Forrester valuable hands on experience in how a building is constructed. After graduating, he worked in industry for several years. Initially, he worked for an Air Force subcontractor that was responsible for the sustainability of radio frequency antennas. After several years he moved on to a local commercial kitchen manufacturer designing and building refrigerators. While working he returned to the University of Colorado at Denver to receive a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering and his Professional Engineer’s license. He then moved on to designing transportation equipment while concurrently starting DMA Engineering.

Steven’s primary responsibility is to aid in all sustainability and energy modeling components of a project. In addition, he manages staff resources, provides technical assistance to the team and performs quality assurance/quality control on all deliverables. He checks-in periodically with the project team to see how the projects are going and how DMA can improve providing engineering assistance.
Steven brings 19 years of engineering experience with mechanical engineering, energy modeling, commissioning, and has been the Engineer of Record for the planning and design of numerous building projects.

Associate Engineer


Mr. LaMorte grew up in Carbondale, Colorado and came over to the Front Range to attend the University of Northern Colorado and ultimately earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology. After being in industry for a few years his interests waned so he changed professions and was a Solar Installer for several years. As time went on he decided mechanical engineering would best enable him achieve his goal of designing renewable energy systems. Anthony attended the University of Colorado at Denver, where he graduated with a bachelor’s of science in mechanical engineering. Anthony has been working concurrently with DMA while pursuing his degree. Anthony’s experience in construction has enabled him to quickly become an invaluable asset for DMA engineering, working as a plumbing designer.

Associate Engineer


Erik grew up in Southeast Denver where he spent summers building homes with his father in the growing suburbs. After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at Vanderbilt University, he returned to Colorado to pursue a career in the aerospace industry. While completing a Master’s program at the University of Colorado, Erik’s attention turned to the interesting changes and challenges of the Energy industry. After changing engineering fields, he worked as a contractor for the Department of Energy, specializing in buildings technology, solar photovoltaics, and geothermal energy. He started working for DMA Engineering in 2013.
