Over the past six months, MHAworks has experienced unprecedented growth as a company in spite of the economic downturn. We have seen a great increase in the need for architectural services in North Carolina. Not only are we seeing many of our repeat clients coming to us with new projects, we are also seeing many new companies coming to the area seeking our expertise for the first time.
Recently we have added five new staff members to our team. Jane Harrsion McGarry, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, joined us in February serving in the role of Project Manager. In addition, Stephanie Bieber joined the team in April and will also serve in the capacity of Project Manager. Jaymes W. Carter, Associate AIA, began working with us in April as a Project Designer. In May, Asa Kamalias, an Intern Architect, was added to our Greenville, North Carolina office.
