Santa Rosa, Calif.-based Quattrocchi Kwok Architects (QKA) is opening a full-service office in Pleasanton, Calif., effective Feb. 1, 2018. David Hansen, who has led several of QKA’s large-scale projects in areas such as Oakland, San Mateo and Hollister, will head the office. With more than 25 years of education design experience and overseeing company operations, Hansen, LEED AP, has served as lead designer and project manager on several complex projects, with a particular emphasis on sustainable practices. Hansen also plays a key role in the ongoing development and implementation of QKA’s innovative building solution called Folia. Folia, developed with partners Blach Construction and Gregory P. Luth and Associates, is a two-story pre-engineered, fully customizable steel classroom building that offers a flexible alternative to traditionally designed and modular buildings.
