Josh S. Jackson


Senior Associate

“My goal is to empower decision makers with information and tools so their buildings and facilities support goals rather than stand in their way. I enjoy seeing my clients achieve their operational goals thanks to my behind-the-scenes support with facility planning.”

Josh is passionate about helping organizations align their facilities and buildings with their institutional goals. With a broad range of project experience across disciplines, scales, and geographies, Josh brings fresh perspectives and out-of-the-box insight to every challenge. Significant project experience includes master plans for public school districts that have yielded $1 billion in school investments, transformative data-driven plans for college and university campuses, and a phased classroom-upgrade plan that created state-of-the-art learning environments within a highly constrained historic building.

Josh also leads research initiatives that help to illuminate trends and project needs related to campus planning, healthcare design, and remote-sensing technology.
