COLUMBIA, SC – Quackenbush Architects + Planners announced that Janie Kronk Gossett, AIA LEED AP BD+C GGP, recently earned her architectural license from the National Council of Architectural Registration Board (NCARB) and certification as a Green Globes ProfessionalTM from the Green Building Initiative (GBI). Gossett, an architect with particular interest in sustainable design, has been with Q+ since 2006.
“Janie’s NCARB registration and GGP certification speak volumes about her commitment to professional growth,” says Doug Quackenbush, President of Quackenbush Architects + Planners. “She continues to seek out new challenges and opportunities in her work, which reflect the core principles we value at Q+.”
Registration as an architect is an intense process requiring the candidate to pass 7 Architectural Registration Exams and complete the Intern Development Program, a work experience regimen developing competence in programming, site and environmental analysis, construction documents, specifications and materials research, and project management.
