Cristina Bump, AIA, LEED AP BD+C


PDF Work Samples

I am a registered architect with ten years of higher education building planning, documenting and construction experience. Adventurous and every willing to learn, I am a software expert who excels in using Revit/BIM to the best of its ability. Strong organization and communication skills allow me to lead coordination and execution on every stage of a project; whether it be rendering stunning graphics for a client meeting to executing construction documents/administration on large projects, I am passionate to grow each day as a shaper of the world. Of special importance are BIM utilization, higher education projects, LEED/green implementation/software and architecture community involvement. Recently I have gained 2 years of programming experience on higher education projects such as UNC's School of Media and Journalism, University of Cincinnati's College of Law and Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service. Currently managing CA on University of Delaware's Biopharmaceutical Innovation Lab set to open in 2020.
