Sydney Wingate is our newest JJCA project coordinator. She’s well-spoken, thoughtful, and driven which makes her a great fit for us, and our culture of fostering close and lasting relationships with clients makes us a great fit for her.
Sydney hails from the Atlanta area, and she has a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the Georgia Institute of Technology. She previously worked at Walbridge Construction – Carlson Design Group, where she assisted with developing schematic design options, exterior building systems, and interior space planning. One of her key accomplishments as an architectural intern was being Interior Finishes Lead on a 300,000 SF manufacturing plant in New Hudson, MI.
She has significant expertise with architectural software programs, including SketchUp, Revit, AutoCAD, V-Ray, and Bluebeam Revu, among others.
Sydney also has been an active volunteer in Caterpillar’s Promise, Incorporated as Director of Marketing and Communications, and worked with 20 children ages 6-18 leading S.T.E.A.M activities. She was also involved in the National Organization of Minority Architecture Students GT chapter.
Her favorite building is the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, her favorite city. “The building challenges my idea of typical architecture and quite literally turns your world inside-out. The exposed metal skeleton along with the visible structural systems represented through four bold colors gives the everyday person insight into how buildings function, while also maximizing the building’s functionality,” she says. She spent six months studying at the Ecole Nationale Superiéure d’architecture de Paris La Villette prior to graduation and is fluent in French.
Her hobbies include listening to and watching True Crime podcasts and documentaries, roller skating, Pilates, hiking, and trying out different coffee shops. She’s working on her list of Nashville shops to discover who has the best cold brew. She also has a passion for designing tattoos and has a small side business helping clients tap into their creative sides with tattoo designs.
At JJCA, “I’m looking forward to taking on new challenges and tasks that push my knowledge of the industry. I’m also really excited about learning in what ways the medical field and architecture intertwine,” she says.
In getting to know Sydney, we already see how well aligned we are. Her thoughtfulness and drive are directed to make the world around her better, which, of course, we fully support. Welcome Sydney!
