ARCHITECT SELECTED FOR SECURE VESTIBULES
We are pleased to
announce that we have selected TRIAD Architects to complete the design work for
our secure vestibules in our older buildings. At the time of publication, we
were finalizing the hiring of a firm to design our new buildings. We hope to be
able to announce this selection soon! Once this occurs, we can form community
committees and put timelines and plans into place to ensure that we stay on
time and within budget on the projects.
