Welcome Elizabeth

Story:

As Bailey Edward continues to climb towards bigger and better horizons, we’re always happy to find new, excited, and experienced individuals to come along for the adventure. Taking her first steps with Bailey Edward, Elizabeth MacLean is the newest architectural member of the Chicago office.

Licensed in both Illinois and Colorado, Elizabeth brings over 15 years’ experience to her role as a Project Architect / Manager. After earning her Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Colorado at Boulder, she kicked off her career in nearby Denver where she began to build a diverse portfolio of single family, multi-family, and mixed-use residential including Planned Urban Development (PUD) projects, commercial remodeling, historic hospitality renovations, retail, and restaurant design. Many of her projects were accomplished by her own Denver–based design/build firm before she moved to the Chicago-land area.

Away from the office, Elizabeth is passionate about cooking, gardening, yoga, and travel. And though the end of summer is near, taking the gardening season with it, Elizabeth doesn’t mind; it just means we’re just one step closer to the winter when she can hit the slopes with her snowboard, though her options may be limited here in the Midwest...do you have a favorite place to play in the powder nearby? Let us know to help Elizabeth feel at home!

We’re excited for you to join us, Elizabeth!
