Member Profile: Suzanne Heam Meyer, Assoc. AIA
Suzanne has just joined AE3 Partners in their offices in San Francisco and Oakland, California as a Job Captain. AE3 Partners is an integrated practice that provides architecture, engineering, construction management, and real estate services for residential, multi-residential, transportation, civic and institutional, education, and health care projects.
Suzanne comes to the firm and the Bay Area from Atlanta, Georgia where she was raised and attended school at Georgia Tech. After she was graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture in 2005, she worked for four years at Harrison Design Associates, an architecture firm, located in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, drafting and designing luxury, custom residences, townhomes, and specialty commercial projects inspired by the best of classical and modern architecture. Returning to her alma mater, Georgia Tech, Suzanne earned her Master of Architecture in 2009, with concentrations in sustainability and urban design.
After graduation, Suzanne continued advancing her design and Revit skills by participating in design competitions and advancing her knowledge of sustainability by becoming a LEED Accredited Professional. While the architecture industry lagged, she created a position for herself as an independent contractor for the booming wireless industry. She provided architectural expertise regarding building construction and materials, and visual impact, and drafting and 3D modeling services for ExteNet Systems, Inc. which provides distributed networks to the cellular carriers. In addition to her consulting work, Suzanne became an adjunct faculty member in CAD and Architectural Design department of a local college where she instructed introductory design courses focused on AutoCAD and Revit.
Suzanne is excited to be living and working in California, which is always on the forefront of implementation of technology and sustainable practices. She looks forward to meeting colleagues at the AIA East Bay Chapter and getting to see all that the Bay Area has to offer.
