Memorable Project Story:
“My most memorable project was my very first…..the canopy design for new car delivery for Hennessy Jaguar Land Rover in Alpharetta. The cantilevered canopy was 60 feet by 40 feet and was only supported by 4 steel columns, which presented quite a challenge. Working as part of a team to develop a dramatic design that was structurally sound while meeting the architects’ vision and client’s needs was very exciting. The finished project is an amazing 2,400 square feet.”
“We should always have an understanding of each client’s business, respond quickly to their needs and provide value for their money!”
