When our partners aren’t architect-ing, they’re archi-talking, and this fall has been busy for conferences and speaking engagements.
Continuing education is essential for our architects to remain some of the best in the business. We’re proud to announce Cindy De Hoyos, Senior Associate and member of our Healthcare team, has achieved her Evidence-Based Design Accreditation and Certification or EDAC. This exam’s five sections test evidence-based design in healthcare, the research process, the pre-design process, construction, and occupancy. Congratulations Cindy!
Tuesday night at AIA San Antonio’s People + Place Awards, Steve Souter received the Legacy Award, the chapter’s highest honor. Moderator Robert Rivard summed up Souter’s legacy: “For 48 years, Steve Souter has been a wise and humble architect of uncompromising integrity. He is a respected community leader whose projects have touched the lives of tens of thousands, and, in the process, has forever transformed San Antonio.” Read more from the Rivard Report about Steve’s Legacy Award and the rest of the evening here.
The purpose of this website is for vendors interested in the University Health System’s Women’s and Children’s Hospital construction project in San Antonio, Texas to submit information on their products. The website provides the opportunity for vendors to submit information on products/materials/systems in a catalog format that will be used as a reference library for use by Design Team Members and Hospital Representatives during design and construction of the facility. THIS IS NOT A BID SITE – IT IS ONLY FOR SUBMISSION OF CATALOG OR BROCHURE INFORMATION FOR REFERENCE. The website is designed to allow vendors to submit their material (within the file size parameters noted) according to CSI specification numbering system. Follow instructions included in this website.
For 48 years, Steve has been an active and essential part of the architecture community. He has upheld a professionalism and integrity that is second to none in the profession of architecture. Steve’s contributions to Marmon Mok are innumerable and he continues to work with a passion and dedication that is rare to find in any practice. Anyone who has had the pleasure to know him and work with him is a better person because of it and the practice of architecture would not be the same without Steve Souter. Congratulations Steve, we cannot think of someone more deserving of AIA San Antonio’s Legacy Award.
As Interior Architect, Marmon Mok designed the interior finish out for 15 floors of the new Frost Tower to be occupied by Frost Bank. All floors contain curated art collections and custom furniture made from live oaks that were harvested from the property. A contemporary design aesthetic is applied throughout each floor, with a focus on integration of modern technology and full utilization of the abundant natural light. Last week we had the wonderful opportunity to celebrate with our client at their official opening; thank you for letting us be part of your history!
Marmon Mok is deeply honored to be named in the San Antonio Express News Top Workplaces for 2019. A special thank you to each member of the Marmon Mok family; it is your passion and unwaivering commitment to outstanding work that makes us better every day. Congratulations team!
