Principal in Charge
AIA, LEED AP, BD+C Jill founded ajc architects in 1991. Since that time, she has acted as Principal-in-Charge of hundreds of projects at ajc architects, taking personal responsibility for quality design, meeting schedules and maintaining budgets.
Her talent for project administration and team leadership has allowed ajc to develop a stable client base and take on increasingly high profile designs. Her pursuit of work with a range of private, corporate, institutional, and government clients has led her to become licensed in 36 states. She’s been on the forefront of incorporating sustainability into the practice of architecture, and has implemented a firm-wide sustainable philosophy for every project designed by ajc architects. Jill became a LEED® accredited professional in 2003, and has successfully overseen the process of LEED® certification for the numerous projects ajc has administered for LEED certification, including Salt Lake City’s first City-owned project to be LEED® certified, the Intermodal Hub, and Utah State University’s first LEED Platinum Building, the Wetland Discovery Point. Jill has also developed strong relationships with non-profit clients providing design services for surrounding communities. Jill has taught a course on Architectural Professional Ethics at the University of Utah Graduate School of Architecture since 2001.
