Celebrating our newly registered architects

It’s no small feat to become a registered architect and we could not be more proud of the 4 new registered architects we have who are making bold statements at CUBE 3. Please join us as we congratulate Jennifer Hegarty, Fred Johnson, Tom Lassy, and Justin Pelland for a job well done.

Besides gaining an understanding of the formal training and hours of experience that are applied toward their ambitious goals, we know how important it is that our clients really know who they’re working with when they engage CUBE 3 in their projects. It’s our pleasure to formally introduce to you our newest registered architects.

What has been your favorite project to work on?
50 Cambridge Park Drive – It’s actually the only project I’ve worked on at C3! It has been invaluable in terms of introducing me to process and giving me a solid base for future projects in terms of coordination and the back and forth of city approvals. In general, however, I enjoy adaptive reuse projects – mills to apartments, industrial to mixed use, etc. I love the challenge of fitting a new program into an existing structure.

What advice would you give to other designers pursuing their license?
Go at your own pace. I was out of school for 11 years before I even started to study for my first test. In those years, I learned that what works for one person may not work for you – circumstances and outside responsibilities are different for everyone. It was very hard not to get discouraged when others reached the end before I did; I had to remember that it’s not a race – it’s a journey. I’d also recommend looking for online groups of people in the same position to get an outside perspective (and maybe some new tips and resources that you haven’t considered) in addition to taking advantage of our in-house resources. There is a ton of support out there if you look.

What has been your favorite project to work on?
Flats at Westchester – my first project at C3.  I was in the unique position to join C3 as Flats at Westchester was in its initial stages of Master Planning.  I have managed the project at each design phase and have learned continuously during the process.  I am eager to get shovels in the ground and see this project through to the completion of construction.

What’s a lesson you have learned that has most benefited you in your career?
Absorb as much information as possible by engaging with the people around you.  C3 is full of knowledge so I was able to ask a lot of great questions and get some pretty incredible answers.

What excites you about being an Architect?
Every day is different and comes with various challenges. This field is fast paces and always changing, so there’s always something new to look forward to.

What advice would you give to other designers pursuing their license?
Don’t lose sight of a work / life balance. It’s easy to get burned out trying to balance work, life, and studying for exams. Setting a schedule that’s achievable and manageable for you and how you learn is the most important thing. Your colleges are a great resource too. Many are going through the same thing or have been there and are always willing to help.

What has been your favorite project to work on?
Every project I’ve been involved with has been unique and challenging in their own way, but RE150 in Medford, MA was one of the most interesting projects I’ve had the opportunity to work on. The project had retail, restaurant, parking, and residential components throughout three different construction types, which made it one of the more complicated projects I’ve been a part of. Working together with the CUBE 3 team, engineers, client, and contractor to see this project through from conception to completion was an incredible experience and I learned a lot through the process.

What’s a lesson you have learned that has most benefitted you in your career?
Sometimes Architecture can be a high-stress, high-pressure industry. The most valuable lesson I’ve learned is that however difficult or stressful a situation might seem, there is always a way to work through it.
