Apr 26, 2001, 01:00 ET from U.S. General Services Administration

    WASHINGTON, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Richard N. Swett, U.S. Ambassador to
 Denmark, has been appointed by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA)
 to its National Register of Peer Professionals for a two-year term.  Peers on
 the National Register help GSA select architects for federal design
 commissions and review the design quality of all GSA construction projects.
     "We are honored to be able to benefit from Ambassador Swett's extensive
 design knowledge and experience," said Paul Chistolini, Acting Commissioner of
 the GSA Public Buildings Service.
     "Our public buildings are a part of our nation's legacy," said Swett.
 "The GSA has recognized that public buildings are more than simply mortar and
 steel. They're integral parts of our communities. I look forward to working
 with my colleagues to ensure the highest standards of design are met for our
 public structures."
     Swett was one of 90 U.S. design experts chosen as peers, based on their
 expertise in design for the particular type of architectural project under
 consideration.  The goal of the National Register is to find the right
 architects for GSA commissions and help critique their work to ensure the
 highest quality public buildings in communities across the United States.
     Swett is a member of the American Institute of Architects.  A member of
 Congress representing New Hampshire's Second Congressional District from 1991
 to 1995, Ambassador Swett has been active in helping formulate public policies
 relating to federal design and construction.  A native of New Hampshire, he
 was appointed to serve as U.S. Ambassador to Denmark in 1998.
