excited to welcome her back to the team as Project Manager. Through her 14 years of archi- tectural experience working in traditional residential and institutional design, Suzanne has gained a strong knowl- edge and appreciation of local architectural design tradi- tions.

He stressed the need for sustainable incentives to be done in advance when develop- ing/renovating office space. If architects and engineers work synergistically, he believes the aforementioned goal can be achieved.
