We cultivate a practice of leaders: a collaboration among optimistic, empowered experts.

John H. Thomas, AIA, LEED AP BD+C

Design has been a large part of John’s passion and practice area for the last 25 years. Focused on large-scale, mixed-use projects, he has led teams on high-density office commercial developments in a variety of urban environments. His experience includes a wide spectrum of development and design expertise, from site analysis and acquisition logistics to strategic planning, design, development, construction, marketing, operations and asset disposition.

John’s strengths include working as a hands-on leader with interdisciplinary collaborative teams under tight deadlines and high standards of excellence for design, delivery, operational performance, and financial return. His ability to balance a passion for design quality with technical knowledge, sound business judgment, excellent communication skills, fiscal responsibility, and a collaborative, inclusive decision-making process has proven to be a strong foundation for his clients’ success.
