I Am AIA:
Heather Skeehan AIAExpand
I started my career at ZGF as a project architect, urban designer and project manager. I was heavily involved in campus master plans, multifamily residential developments, and workplace design. My passion for seeing projects through construction developed early on. When an opportunity arose to join GLY Construction’s VDC department, I jumped at the chance to work with teams to facilitate a more seamless relationship between the worlds of design and construction. My current role draws on my communication and technical design skills to bridge the gap between the design team and construction.
Why did you join AIA Seattle?
To support and increase my involvement in an organization which has supported continuing education, outreach, and research that has contributed to my development as a professional.
What is the value of AIA to you?
To provide programming and a forum for building a strong AEC community that facilitates collaboration and trust both inside and outside of projects.
What relationships have you created?
Working with AIA Seattle and attending events that AIA has put on has both broadened my connections within the AEC community and deepened my connections to practicing professionals in the city.
