JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jacksonville-based architecture, landscape architecture and planning firm ELM | Ervin Lovett Miller has announced that Tim Miller, one of the firm’s founding partners, will retire at the end of March.
A registered architect with more than 40 years of expertise, Miller has contributed his experience, expertise, and leadership to ELM for the past 17 years, helping to build the firm into one of the Southeast’s most respected multidisciplinary design practices.
“Tim is a hugely talented professional, but he’s an even better person,” said ELM partner Steve Lovett. “His design talents are matched by his outgoing personality, sense of humor and love of people. He’s helped to create a very positive office culture and to reinforce ELM’s commitment to service.”
Miller co-founded ELM with partners Russ Ervin and Steve Lovett in 2001, and has brought the combined talents of a gifted designer and proficient technician to hundreds of the firm’s multidisciplinary projects, primarily in the southeastern United States. He will remain on the ELM’s Board of Directors and, following a three-month sabbatical, will maintain a consulting role on a part-time basis to serve the firm’s expanding mix of clients and projects.
“2018 will be an exciting year for ELM. We are delighted for Tim’s next phase of life, and are pleased that he will remain a part of ELM’s Board of Directors for at least another five years,” said partner Russ Ervin. “His continued guidance will benefit the firm’s next generation of leadership and growth.”
ELM has several high-profile projects in design and under construction throughout northeast Florida, the greater Southeast, Texas, Montana and the Pacific Northwest. These projects include urban design/redevelopment, mixed-use, multi-family, private club and hospitality and large-scale master planned communities and recreational amenities.
Miller received his Bachelor of Design from the University of Florida in 1981, and a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Auburn University in 1987. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the San Marco Preservation Society. He served on the City of Jacksonville’s Downtown Development Review Board for eight years, holding the position of Board Chairman for the last two years of his service.
