We're just finishing up at UMASS New Africa House after nine months of construction. Thanks to Jacquie Scott, project architect, Scott Tulay and Jane Spooner for persevering. We played a bit with materials and color on this project and we're quite thrilled with the results. Thanks, as always, to UMASS Facilities, Yvonne Kielb and Tom Shaw in particular, for keeping it local.

We're also very pleased and excited to welcome Maria Chao to Juster Pope Frazier. Maria will be working with us on the Nichols Student Center and the First National Bank Renovations, both of which will be subjects of this intermittent blog.
