Firm Furthers Sustainable Stewardship Exploration and Long-Term Impact
Quinn Evans, one of the nation’s leading planning, design, and historic preservation firms, has announced the addition of a Preservation and Sustainability Research Fellow, Talia Greenberg. In this role, Talia will explore sustainable stewardship-oriented research with an emphasis on the future of planning, design, and construction for the firm.
Talia Greenberg is a graduate of Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science (2021) in Design and Environmental Analysis with a concentration in Urban and Regional Studies. She will work closely with QE’s director of sustainability, Julia Siple, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, to lead a one-year research project that evaluates the social, environmental, and financial value of preserving and transforming existing buildings. The analysis will incorporate visualization of financial, carbon, and equity considerations and impacts over time through detailed life-cycle analyses of current projects across the firm’s six offices.
This fellowship is an opportunity for Quinn Evans to address important questions about the value and impact of sustainable stewardship and connect across the profession. Continuing to learn and advance our profession is a core value of our firm culture.
