Honoré Carmona Vera is especially proud of his work on Page’s U.S. Embassy in Dakar, Senegal, a state-of-the-art workplace for more than 450 government employees. Honoré played an important role in the embassy’s design to meet LEED Gold certification, a feat that required camaraderie among all members of the project team.

“All the details for the project were managed and detailed carefully in collaboration with the contractor and client, which produced a design that works well, looks great and is efficient,” Honoré says, adding that the process also provided the firm with a previously unforeseen benefit. “This project also allowed us to consolidate our in-house and outside design team, which we have maintained for new/similar projects.”

Working as a multidisciplinary team, he says, only improves in quality over time and that helps to ensure the success of the team’s next projects. “The more we know each other,” he explains, “the better we work together. I am fortunate to have been working with a very stable team that allows us to be really effective and accomplish great things in very little time.”
