Charles Naeve, PE

Founding Principal

"By the age of 10, I had decided to become an 'Architectural Engineer'. The name alone had captured my imagination. Sometime later I learned that Architectural Engineers designed buildings, and not cars. Though I am still enamored with cars, I now find buildings more satisfying. "

Chuck Naeve is Founding Principal of Architectural Engineers Collaborative. Chuck has managed structural engineering projects and business activities of engineering firms for over thirty years. He has practiced extensively in the United States, as well as internationally. Chuck is known for creating architectural structures in support of building architecture, and for developing sustainable building structures in harmony with the natural environment. Chuck Naeve has been recognized with honorary membership in the American Institute of Architects, Austin and Texas chapters, for his significant contributions to the field of architecture and to the built environment.



As structural engineers, we consistently deliver excellence in service and product. We act in the interest of our clients and the built environment.


Our mission is to provide thoughtful and expert structural design solutions that both fit our clients’ needs and advance their creative visions.


At AEC, we believe that technical proficiency, creativity, and innovation are best cultivated by the free exchange of ideas in a community of diverse strengths and experiences.
