Carol Pacheo Vidal
BArch (Hons), BE, MArch
Architectural Designer

Carol is a recent graduate of Syracuse University, with an M.S. in Architecture, focusing on Design, Energy, and Future. With her degree in Civil Engineering from the Polytechnic School of Litoral, Guayaquil, Ecuador, and a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture and Civil Engineering, Carol’s perspective brings balance between the creativity of an architect and the scientific thinking of an engineer to every project.

Carol has experience as both a construction manager and designer. Both of those experiences have helped her learn from a multidisciplinary staff, and she strongly values learning from others.

Carol considers herself proactive and always in search of alternatives to find the best solution. This goes hand in hand with her M.S. program, which revolves around achieving sustainability in building and urban scale. As a designer and project manager, she has experience elaborating visualization for clients, construction documents, estimation, scheduling, and construction management on residential and commercial projects.

Carol strives to establish a sustainable approach for every project. Moreover, she aims to merge formal and functional aspects of every design to encourage a sense of belonging for our clients and the importance of sustainability and preserving resources.
