Amber joined Payette in 2019 with over 10 years of experience practicing and teaching architecture across the country. For the last several years, Amber has focused on the renovation of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health lab and office tower and is leading the construction administration effort after overseeing all prior phases. Before that, Amber worked on the University of Hartford’s Hursey Center for Advanced Engineering and Health Professions.
