Susie See, PE LEED AP BD+C
I fell in love with building design when I was eight years old after a trip to California and a tour of San Simeon. I was in awe with how different rooms and spaces could make you feel and the experience of moving from one space to another. After that trip, all I did was draw building sections, floor plans and stairways. I snuck into the houses under construction in my neighborhood and convinced my mom to take me to the open houses of unique properties in our area. Unfortunately, my 4th grade art teacher didn’t appreciate my sketches and drawing technique and I was “encouraged” to focus on science and math in lieu of art and design. Luckily, in high school, I discovered a field of study – Architectural Engineering - it was perfect for me (like peanut butter and chocolate)! After graduating engineering school, I joined Flack + Kurtz where I focused on electrical and lighting design for a wide range of buildings throughout the US and the world. Now after more than 25 years, I am thrilled to help start a firm where we are all passionate about building design and the positive effects of strong collaboration.
