Hello, I am Rachel Hill a Project Manager at TAB Associates. I have been with the company for a year and a half and adventuring in Colorado for the past five years. I graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from Mississippi State University. After I graduated I started working for a local non-profit on the Mississippi Gulf Coast teaching under privileged women general construction and trades skills. This experience helped me gain hands on experience with the construction process as well as onsite architectural detailing. It was this unique experience that helped shape me into a well-rounded designer. I am currently LEED Green Associate certified while I am also working towards completing my architecture licensure exams.
I enjoy working on a variety of different architypes throughout my career, which has created a wide range in my design background with a concentration in hospitality and multifamily design in resort communities. I have been a key design team member on numerous resort villages, hotels, condominiums, retail stores, and restaurants. While at TAB Associates I have been focusing on K-12 educational architecture in the High Rockies of Colorado. Most recently, I lead the project team as we wrapped up the design phases for an extensive renovation and addition at Red Sandstone Elementary School (Vail, CO) and will continue to watch the project take shape as it heads into construction. What I find so unique about educational architecture is how rewarding and personal the experience feels. The students, faculty, and staff are so enthralled and excited about the entire experience that their energy really has a way of inserting itself into the design. My attention to detail and organization skills make me an asset to any team especially in the later phases of design and throughout construction. However, it’s really in the conceptual stages of design that I enjoy watching an idea take shape and form into the building it will become.
While not at the office, I enjoy traveling and getting out to explore the wonderful opportunities that living in Colorado provides. While I moved to the Colorado mountains for the winter activities, summer is my favorite Colorado season. My hobbies include hiking, kayaking, skiing, yoga, painting, and eating quesadillas. And you can always find me cheering on my Mississippi State Bulldogs, Hail State!
