In addition to the previously-reported 7 new additions to ELM’s highly-experienced core staff of planners, architects, landscape architects, and designers, the firm now includes two more new team members in Jacksonville and Seattle.
The newest member of ELM’s Seattle-based team is Sue Costa Paschke, an associate landscape architect who earned her master’s degree in landscape architecture from the University of Washington. Her background in environmental science and eight years of experience in primate care and training inspire her to design enriching environments for humans and animals that respect local ecology and resources. With more than a decade of work as a CAD drafter and manager with landscape architects and engineers, Ms. Paschke produces high quality construction details and graphics through a variety of software and mediums. She is currently supporting the Africa Rocks project at the San Diego Zoo.
The recent addition to ELM’s Jacksonville-based team is Michael Schiebe, an associate landscape architect who recently earned his master’s degree in landscape architecture from the University of Minnesota. Mr. Schiebe has several years of prior experience handling LEED certification, sustainability, and environmental regulation and inspection. As the most recent overall addition to the coast-to-coast ELM design team, he is utilizing his award-winning talent to provide assistance in schematic design, design development, construction documents, planning studies and presentation graphics for various ongoing projects.
The firm’s Seattle expansion and recent talent acquisitions reinforce and strengthen ELM to bring value to local, regional, national and international development clients, resort developers and operators, golf and club facilities, health care institutions, zoos, and tribal governments.
