LSC Design, York, PA, Architectural Designer

As an Architectural Designer, I worked closely with our Director of Design to iterate concept and schematic design for a variety of commercial projects. As the projects progressed, I took on the Project Designer role within the project team. I drew construction documents and details, and on a few occasions was able to carry a project from concept to construction. I was also very involved in the graphic representation of projects, creating architectural diagrams, renders, RFP responses, AIA award submissions, and other marketing materials.
