OAKLAND, Calif. – KTGY Architecture + Planning has promoted Zac Miles, AIA, to associate principal, announced Jill Williams, AIA, chairman of KTGY’s board of directors and managing principal of the firm’s Oakland office. With more than 18 years of experience in residential design and project management, Miles formerly served as director in KTGY’s Oakland office.
“Zac’s promotion is the well-earned recognition of his dedication to our clients and the many contributions he has made to the growth and success of the firm,” said Williams. “Zac exemplifies professionalism, outstanding technical and design expertise and leadership; we look forward to his continued success.”
As associate principal for KTGY’s Oakland office, Miles is focused on design and construction of high-density, multifamily developments on infill sites throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, particularly transit-oriented developments. He is a talented team leader, drawing on his comprehensive experience and strong technical knowledge to manage a team of skilled professionals undertaking complex design and construction projects that reinvigorate the community. He has been instrumental in championing the extensive use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Revit to assist clients in the marrying of architectural design, MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) and structural engineering and construction prior to construction commencing. Miles serves on KTGY’s Quality Control committee, which establishes companywide quality assurance and quality control procedures.

- Capitol 650 (350 apartment homes) in Milpitas located near the future BART Station Milpitas (Lennar Multifamily Communities);
- Residential developments in the 111-acre master-planned mixed-use community of Warm Springs in Fremont adjacent to the new Warm Springs BART Station (Lennar Multifamily Communities, Toll Brothers and Eden Housing);

- The Platform, a transit-oriented, mixed-use development totaling approximately 550 residential units with 40,000 square feet of retail adjacent the new Berryessa BART station in San Jose, which is currently under construction (Western National Group); and
