Announcing New Firm Leaders
The expansion of our leadership continues with two new appointments. Ashley Rao AIA will become Principal and Jeffrey Fishbein AIA will become Associate Principal.

Ashley and Jeffrey have each demonstrated unique talents and foresight in advancing design excellence in our collaborative and inclusive environment.

Ashley’s collaborative design sensibility is motivated by a deep commitment to sustainable design principles and enthusiasm for community building.  A thoughtful listener and gifted communicator, she excels in cultivating productive, synergistic relationships with clients and leads by example in fostering a supportive team environment.

Jeff’s attention to detail and deep knowledge of materials and assemblies have made him a key leader of Quality Assurance/Quality Control throughout the practice. He has also contributed significantly to the firm’s address of the AIA 2030 Challenge. Most recently, he authored an article on sustainable Mass Timber Construction for Metropolis’ magazine’s “Making Connections” blog.
