KMA is pleased to announce the promotions of Lisa Pilorz to Associate Principal and J Garofalo to Associate. Even in these unprecedented times, KMA staff are working and thriving – collaborating with clients, supporting colleagues, and expanding & refining our expertise. We are grateful to Lisa and J for their continued dedication to our firm and its work.

Lisa Pilorz, Assoc. AIA, Leed AP BD+C

Since joining KMA in 2010, Lisa’s expertise as an accessibility compliance consultant to local and state governments, public and private institutions, architects, and developers has benefited countless KMA clients and colleagues. In recent years, she has turned her careful attention to KMA’s diverse portfolio of multifamily housing clients throughout the US. In her new role as Associate Principal, Lisa will have primary responsibility for leading KMA’s work in this market sector, balancing the in-person and on-site expertise that her clients have come to value with increased responsibility for business development, project management, and staff mentorship.

More about Lisa here. Congrats!

J Garofalo

A 2020 graduate of the Master of Architecture program at the Boston Architectural College, J’s interest in accessibility and Universal Design predates their arrival in 2017 at KMA. In the years since, they have worked as a trusted project manager on numerous high-profile university projects at Boston College, Northeastern University, Washington & Lee University, Wellesley College, and other institutions of higher education throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic. In their role as Associate, J will continue to work with clients in higher education but will also focus increasingly on K-12 education – in particular, specializing in Massachusetts projects that require variances with the Architectural Access Board.
