Tuyen’s Summer Internship

Black and white headshot of Tuyen TramTuyen Tram joined us for a summer internship and we are thoroughly enjoying our time with her. She comes to us from Clemson University where she is pursuing her master’s degree in architecture. While with us she has been involved with most of our current projects and her favorite part has been the site visits and OAC meetings. Tuyen said, ‘it was great learning about and experiencing how a punch walk actually takes place, and how the collaboration between architect, owner, and contractor works.’ Tuyen has been wonderful to work with and we feel lucky to have her on our team even if it’s just for the summer.

Welcome to the Team Haley

We are thrilled to welcome Haley Meyer back to our team! She worked with us as an intern before and is now joining us as an Architectural Designer. Seeing through the design lens of her mother who works at an architectural firm, Haley was inspired to see how buildings came to fruition, and how this field can shape the built environment we are immersed in every day. Originally embarking in the healthcare field in school, Haley quickly realized that there needs to be more thoughtful design in the medical field, as this is one of the most impactful spaces one can go through when facing trials. This premise to design with the intent to create profound moments of healing and growth is why healthcare architecture was a perfect fit for Haley and why Haley is a perfect fit for TSA.
