KSQ Opens South Carolina Office

KSQ has opened an office in Charleston, South Carolina. The new presence is the result of the former Charleston practice of Clancy Wells Architects joining KSQ.   The Charleston office is led by principals Mark Clancy and Steve Wells and will focus on serving current and prospective clients in all areas of practice. Clancy Wells was originally established in 2005. Mark Clancy, AIA, LEED AP, has almost 30 years of experience in a full range of architectural work and is a recipient of the Rudolph E. Lee award in Architecture at Clemson University (where he received his Master of Architecture). He is interested in all things athletic, and this includes parks and recreation design; he was the project architect and design for the Patriots Point Tennis Center for the College of Charleston (USTA Outstanding Tennis Facility Award, 2004). Steve Wells, AIA, LEED AP, has a diverse project portfolio created over the past three decades that includes AIA award-winning commercial, residential and civic projects. Also a graduate of Clemson's Master of Architecture program, Steve views each project as a fresh start for the creative process and sustainability as "common sense." He's lived in Charleston and by the water for so many years,  yet he's not on the water near enough for his liking. "This new relationship provides a wealth of resources and opportunities to broaden the scope of what we can provide our clients in South Carolina," said Mark. "With our established relationship with the staff in KSQ's Charlotte office, we have all the ingredients here for future success." KSQ principal and director Armand Quadrini, AIA, LEED AP, adds,

"The experience and knowledge Mark and Steve bring to our firm is pivotal to our growth in the Southeast. Both culturally and portfolio-wise, they are an excellent fit for us, and we look forward to our extended reach with their help."
