Jessica Cochran

As the leader of our Raleigh office, Jessica brings more than 10 years of experience working on projects of varying scales and typologies. Her expertise includes a significant portfolio of complex, large-scale designs for laboratories and pharmaceutical manufacturing clients across the Carolinas as well as single-family homes, historic buildings, universities, and civic projects.

Driven by the process of client engagement, Jessica is deeply invested in collaborating with her clients to deliver successful outcomes. She believes that the audacity of scale inherent in laboratory and pharmaceutical work provides both challenges and opportunities to unite the entire project team around a shared goal.

With an academic background in fine art, Jessica has always been fascinated by creating, making, and building and was drawn to architecture for its blend of analytical thinking and creativity. When not leading the next biotech or pharma project, Jessica makes time for other creative pursuits including painting, ceramics, charcoal, and mixed media.
