OAKLAND, CALIF. – International award-winning KTGY Architecture + Planning, one of the nation’s leading full-service architecture and planning firms, is celebrating its 25th Anniversary in business, by highlighting 25 Acts of Gratitude.

“We are grateful for the opportunities we have to work on outstanding developments, with excellent developers and builders, and we continue to elevate our work with the quality of the architecture we deliver,” said Jill Williams, AIA, chairman of KTGY Architecture + Planning. “At 25, we are really just getting started!”

“We are so proud of where we’ve been and even more excited about where we are going,” said Tricia Esser, KTGY’s CEO. “This is a growing and busy time and we have so much to be thankful for.”

“With seven offices, our talents and relationships have led us to become involved with charitable organizations across the country and even around the world,” Esser added. “With 25 Acts of Gratitude, we are celebrating 25 of the ways we have immersed in our communities.”

Highlights from KTGY’s 25th Anniversary Acts of Gratitude include Habitat for Humanity build days where staff members from all seven offices have the opportunity to spend a day working to build a home for a family in need. The firm’s Making a Difference Program invites staff members to apply for funds to support organizations that are near and dear to team members’ hearts. This year, through the Making a Difference Program, KTGY supported employees’ commitments to feeding the homeless at Thanksgiving time, building parks on vacant lots, and educating girls in need. Several team members volunteer with the ACE mentor program, inspiring high school students to pursue careers in the AEC field. In India, KTGY’s Pune office supports an orphanage and school for girls, assisting in making higher education possible for some. To learn more about KTGY’s Act of Gratitude, click here.
