KPMG's new Raleigh, North Carolina office has been certified LEED Silver!
Congratulations to The M Group’s Wasib Mahmood! Wasib successfully completed his thesis year and defense, and will be graduating from Virginia Tech’s Washington Alexandria Architecture Center with a Masters of Architecture Degree.
Wasib's thesis, an incredibly thoughtful study on orphaned youth in Karachi, Pakistan, earned praise from all and received special recognition from the Program Director. The awarding of a crystal from an antique school chandelier is a school tradition since the 1970's and is given to outstanding work.
Well earned Wasib!
M Group has launched a new office in Seattle, Washington! Benjamin Marder, an architectural designer and manager, has relocated to the west coast. He continues to work closely with the Reston team on local projects, while actively growing The M Group's footprint.
Several M Group employees volunteered to work at this important event which took place Saturday, April 16th. Our team picked up trash at the Snakeden Branch/Hunters Woods Village Center area in Reston, VA. It was a beautiful day to get outside and to give back to the community.
Some fun facts:
334,952 total pounds of trash were collected
For the 3rd year, The M Group was a proud sponsor of the Greater Reston Arts Center’s Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival. The festival took place May 21st and May 22nd at the Reston Town Center. Despite the rain, the event was a huge success with over 200 artist’s participating and attracting over 25,000 patrons.
The M Group was given the opportunity to create a temporary piece of art to be located at the family/kid pavilion. This year TMG created several interactive pieces with the help from some famous paintings. The end result was a huge hit with both the young and the old.
Having some fun with the pieces are our very own Karen Lewis and Mike Timcheck.
We hope you can join in the fun next year as the festival takes place May 20th and May 21st, 2017.
