MS. Arch Alumni Take Big Career Steps Post-Graduation
SoA Alumni David Tapia Takai (MS. Arch 2014) and Carol Heffern (MS. Arch 2010) have accepted exciting new positions in the profession.
David has been hired as an Assistant Project Manager by Liberty Group Construction and Design in Bethesda, Maryland. His letter of offer stated, “We feel that your education, skills, and experience will be an ideal fit for our growing company in this important support role for our clients,” acknowledging the strength of what he learned at CAPLA.
Carol accepted an architecture position with Slater Paull/Hord Coplan Macht in Denver. Carol’s new office will be in an old fire station next to Coors Field—the first LEED Platinum historic renovation in Colorado. “I am looking forward to working with a firm committed to sustainability and pushing the boundaries of technology and preservation…and I wouldn’t have been qualified had it not been for Professor Nader Chalfoun. Thank you for preparing me for this opportunity!"
