Administrative Actions

Gordon Wayne Calhoon

Encino—Effective July 24, 1999, Gordon Wayne Calhoon’s architect license number C-11576 was revoked after the Board adopted a Stipulation in Settlement ordering revocation. An Accusation was filed against Mr. Calhoon for violations of Business and Professions Code sections 5583 (Fraud in the Practice of Architecture), 5584 (Negligence or Willful Misconduct) and 5586 (Public Agency; Disciplinary Action). Mr. Calhoon was hired as an architect and contractor to demolish and rebuild residences that were damaged by the 1994 Northridge earthquake. Board action was taken based on evidence that Mr. Calhoon falsely represented that, as an architect, he could act as a contractor. After getting the projects, Mr. Calhoon acted as a contractor (without being appropriately licensed) and failed to adequately supervise the construction, resulting in a material injury to both homeowners. He used an unlicensed contractor to supervise construction, and approved work which he knew did not comply with relevant building codes. The Contractors State License Board issued a citation to Mr. Calhoon based on evidence that he provided contracting services prior to being issued a license.
