In working on educational projects, I am excited to have more resources available than ever before. We use technological tools and research data to study a variety of design factors, including daylight, material performance, acoustics and the effects of the built environment on learning. Recent interdisciplinary developments have provided a wealth of additional perspectives, from psychology to computational fluid dynamics. These perspectives inform the daily decisions that we make with our clients and the end result is better-performing buildings for the communities they serve. I enjoy bringing the best possible practices to problem-solving, coupled with the creative design process and great working relationships on each project.
