Latino Entrepreneurs Make It In America: Juan Molano, Partner, Redline Architecture
As we take time during Hispanic Heritage Month to celebrate important contributions of the Latino community to our economy, House Democrats are highlighting Hispanic entrepreneurs across the country who are helping to drive our economic recovery:
Juan Molano founded Redline Architecture in 2003 and specializes in commercial, professional, and industrial buildings in Laredo and surrounding areas in South Texas. His firm works with government agencies, such as GSA, to utilize LEED and Energy Star to create more environmental and health driven designs. Originally from Laredo, Juan gained exposure to architecture in both Little Rock, Arkansas and Houston, Texas and upon completing his architecture degree in 1999, he interned with Collins Reisenbichler Architects (now Perkins + Will) in Dallas, Texas. While in Dallas, he worked on Senior Living Projects scattered throughout the United States. A couple years later, he returned to Laredo to open his own practice with his wife Telissa in 2001.
Juan is a registered Registered Accessibility Specialist licensed with the State of Texas, and his firm is registered as a Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) with the State of Texas, is a founding firm of AIA Laredo (a Section of the Lower Rio Grande Valley Chapter of the American Institute of Architecture), and has a LEED accredited partner.
House Democrats are committed to helping Juan and other Latino entrepreneurs and innovators succeed by focusing on our Make It In America plan - a plan to boost job creation by promoting an encouraging environment for businesses to innovate and make products here in the U.S. To learn more about how the Make It In America plan will help the Latino community, click here.
