Proud Moment for TLCD Architecture
I feel very fortunate to have attended the annual North Bay Business Journal Top Projects awards last night with Don Tomasi, Suzanne Nagorka, Kevin Teel and his wife Carolyn. This was a very special event for all of us because 2 of the 11 winning projects were Civic projects led by Mark Adams.
Don was able to present both awards to the owners and he was very eloquent in his praise of Mark’s leadership skills, his passion and dedication to these two very diverse projects, and his ongoing focus on design excellence in the built environment. For all of us who attended, it was apparent that this was far more than just a simple awards ceremony, it was a tribute to Mark’s work and achievements.
Marc Richardson with the City of Santa Rosa Recreation and Parks department, commented on Mark’s amazing skill at leading multiple neighborhood meetings and gaining community consensus to move the renovation of the DeTurk Round Barn forward. Miles Ferris with the City of Santa Rosa’s Utilities department commended Mark for pushing them to design a building that was more than just functional. The Utilities Field Office (UFO) is a model of sustainable design and is the first commercial project approved within the City’s new Green Building Development program.
From Don’s heartfelt words, to the high praise from our clients, it was an affirmation of Mark’s work and the legacy of his projects in the North Bay. It was one of the proudest moments I’ve had with TLCD Architecture and I know Mark is smiling on us all.
