Ms. Jennifer Workman is a 2003 graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Architecture and a minor in Business. While pursuing her degree, Jennifer augmented her experience with extensive travel overseas with a focus on museums. She has received awards from the American Institute of Architects for her dedicated volunteer service to advancing the profession of architecture and the voice of the emerging professional. In 2013 she was selected by the national College of Fellows as a recipient of the AIA Young Architect Award. She has served on numerous board committees at the local state and national levels and will be a 2014 Vice Chair to the Texas Society of Architects (TSA).

Jennifer joined GFF in 2004 with experience in elementary schools and libraries. Since then she has worked on a range of project types from retail developments to institutional projects. Her most notable project at GFF was the Perot Museum of Nature and Science where she worked in Los Angeles, CA with design firm Morphosis on the design and construction documents. Following her return to Dallas, she worked as the architect’s liaison on the construction site of the museum with the contractor while the building was under construction. She managed multiple consultants and oversaw quality control of construction. Her time on the museum has garnered her experience with a complex, fast-track project using Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) methods and Building Information Modeling (BIM). Jennifer is now leading several multi-family projects.
