Scale Design + Build is owned and operated by Jack Lin. Jack mostly grew up on Long Island, New York.  He went to college at Columbia University in 2001 where he earned a dual BA/BS degree in Architecture and Civil Engineering in 1996. After graduating, he spent some time in the corporate and consulting world working for Accenture, a technology and management consulting firm, helping to build the 311 call center for New York City, the largest in the country.

After about two years in the consulting world, Jack decided to return to his original interests by completing a Master in Architecture at Harvard University, graduating in 2008. That same year, Jack moved to Houston with his wife Elaine and formed his company (originally as Inflection Design Group) in April of 2009. At Scale Design + Build, Jack is responsible for the hundreds of decisions, spread out over several months, that is required of a builder.

He is driven by a focus on both detailed craftsmanship and how a well designed space can add comfort and character to a home. His objective is to achieve an extraordinary level of quality in each home that he builds. As a LEED certified AP, he is also concerned with environmental stewardship and strives to incorporate Green Building best practices into his projects whenever possible.
