As our designs aspire to build healthy communities, our team builds healthy communities through active engagement in civic and community initiatives.

Additionally, our professionals contribute time and energy toward industry participation in Commercial Real Estate Executive Women (CREW), Urban Land Institute, the National Association of Minority Architects (NOMA), and the ACE Mentorship program to name a few.
