BOSTON – Boston-based Finegold Alexander Architects announced that architects Megan Carriere, AIA, NCARB, and Erin Flaherty, AIA, have both been promoted to Associate.
“Megan and Erin have both demonstrated leadership in the critical areas of collegiality, technical skills, and marketability, and we are thrilled to elevate them both,” said Rebecca Berry, AIA, LEED AP, Principal and President of Finegold Alexander. “Megan has an excellent eye for design and extensive construction knowledge, and Erin is equally comfortable designing a project in Revit as she is navigating a construction site. Their commitment to Finegold Alexander and their projects make them both excellent additions to our esteemed group of Associates.”
