Joel Williams

Quattrocchi Kwok Architects has named Joel Williams to head its Pleasanton, Calif., office as project manager and studio lead.

In his previous position as project manager at LCA Architects, Williams oversaw multiphase projects in the East Bay, including modernization and new construction at Oakland’s Fremont High School. His 15 years of experience — including over a decade specializing in public and private school projects — range in scale from university master plans to small classroom renovations. His design approach integrates recycled and renewable resource strategies with innovative structural solutions to bring high-performance, sustainable learning spaces to life.

Williams earned his Master of Architecture degree from California College of the Arts and his Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology degree from Pacific Union College. Active in both his professional and personal life, he is a member of the American Institute of Architecture (AIA) and has served as the advisory board chair for the St. Mary School.

Headquartered in Santa Rosa, QKA opened a dedicated East Bay office in Pleasanton in 2017 to better serve its many East Bay, Peninsula and South Bay education design clients.
