Gil has been an active leader in the profession through his ongoing involvement with industry and community organizations. Over the last several years, he has participated in the ULI Atlanta District Council mentor program enjoying the opportunity to support and encourage the professional pursuits of young ULI members.

Gil’s team is the very best at integrating excellent design with the practical challenges of production, budget, and schedule -- a truly crucial quality in an architect.”
