Architectural Design

The Architectural Design team is responsible for the design of new buildings and existing space renovations, master planning of the campus, LEED certification of new buildings and renovations, commissioning of new construction, and engineering design for renovation projects.

In-house Design

The Architectural Design team creates schematic design and permit drawings for interior renovations, and oversees and works collaboratively with the in-house construction team. They also manage existing records for all buildings on campus, including hardcopy and digital drawings, building specifications and manuals, and construction progress photos.

Campus Planning

The associate planner assists with master planning and space utilization on campus.
