It’s no surprise that when construction slumps, architects suffer. But Tricia Esser — CEO of Orange County architects KTGY — says she hasn’t been this upbeat in a year or more.

Esser tells in a podcast interview that she sees significant pockets of activity within the home-building business and some revived energy with apartment developers. But it’s not easy business because developers are tight-fisted, seeking costs containment — and energy efficiency, too — at all levels of the projects. And as part of this upbeat feeling, KTGY completed a merger with CAX of Virginia to bring its business to the East Coast.
