Joe Mayo of Mahlum to study wood construction technology
Mayo has been a staff member at Mahlum for the past three years. He specializes in graphics development and digital support, focusing primarily on Mahlum’s student housing projects. A LEED Accredited Professional, Mayo supports design efforts with daylighting studies, climatic analysis and LEED tracking, as well as research on environmental issues such as passive ventilation and alternative material selection. He is currently working on the West Campus Housing project, a 4-block mixed-use residential development for the University of Washington. Joe holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Washington and a Master of Architecture from the University of Oregon. Before joining Mahlum, Joe was an AmeriCorps Service volunteer working in environmental restoration and also building homes for low-income families. These issues of socially conscience and environmentally responsible architecture are important to Mayo and inform his professional practice.
Mayo’s honor will be announced at the AIA Seattle Honors Dinner held May 21.
