Patrice Sowers

Architectural Specialist

Meet Patrice

Patrice Sowers joined Ervinas in 2016 after over 25 years of practicing Architecture. In 1992, Patrice left her solo residential practice in Southern California to join the firm of Veldon Simpson Architects, Las Vegas. At that time, this relatively small dynamic team was designing the largest and most visionary hospitality projects in the world; the MGM Grand Hotel Casino and Luxor.

Hotel Casino projects were enormous in scale and pushed the envelope of all known building codes. The schedules were brutal and the consequences for not meeting them were harsh. The project budgets were extraordinary but it was the splendor of the realization experience and being a part of the creative dynamic process that shaped Las Vegas that was awe inspiring and truly priceless. Between 1992 and 2009 Patrice worked with or managed regionally and internationally renowned Architecture firms such as Leo A. Daly Architecture & Engineering, Bergman Walls & Associates and Nadel Architects. Notable projects which Patrice participated include the $2.9 billion Fontainbleau Las Vegas, Vdara Hotel & Spa Las Vegas (part of MGM’s City Center), Resorts International Atlantic City and Yavapai Resort Hotel & Casino in Phoenix.

In addition to Patrice’s extensive & impressive architectural / construction experience, she has also served as the Chief Operating Officer of an internet technology start-up in the streaming media space and Founder / Vice President of Operations & Compliance for one of the first licensed Nevada cultivation facilities.
