Meet our team.
SAR+ Picnic
I was attracted to SAR+ because it is a people oriented firm. The care we have for each other seamlessly extends to the care we have for the people we design for.

SAR+ Since 2017

Kristin Tresner, LEED AP


Kristin joined SAR+ in 2017 upon returning to Denver after a few years away. A native of Kansas, she found her way to Denver after a little time working in the Big Apple. Though family decisions took her elsewhere for a few years, her love for Colorado never waned and she was able to return and join the SAR+ family, home to several longtime professional colleagues and friends.

Through her career Kristin has had the chance to work on a wide variety of projects, many from design initiation all the way through construction completion. This work has included retail, office, single family residential, assisted living, and civic work.  After having encountered multifamily projects in several of her roles, she immediately brought great value to some of our longtime clients for projects such as Alexan Julian and a new high-rise project to be developed in Denver’s Ballpark neighborhood.

After surviving the custom building of her own family’s home at a young age, for Kristin, her place in this profession felt natural. It shows in her work today as she guides our projects and our Clients seamlessly with her endless Project Management skills.
