Pete Karaiskos brings over thirty years of product design, architectural and engineering experience to The Sliding Door Company. In 1988, and after working for fourteen years as a “job-shopper,” Mr. Karaiskos started his own engineering consulting business. His client list included Hilton, Marriott and the MGM Grand, Amgen, Seimens and Mini-Med. With over a million square feet of space-planning and tenant improvement experience, Mr. Karaiskos was a natural fit for TSDC and started his role as the R&D Manager in 2014.
In 1998, Mr. Karaiskos was contracted to develop a plan for a new type of city in Dubai – one based on developing biotechnical science for humanitarian purposes. That city is now being developed as Dubiotech. More recently, Mr. Karaiskos led a team of designers to produce the Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion in Orlando, FL and worked on special effects for the Pirates of the Caribbean project for Shanghai Disneyland.
Mr. Karaiskos has been published both as a technical author (AutoCAD) and a technical illustrator (ADA). As an Authorized Autodesk Developer, he developed several commercially-sold software products. He holds two patents on products he has developed.
