MAITLAND, FL, April 26, 2018 – Mary Moltzan, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, Principal and Partner of Charlan Brock Architects (CBA), served as moderator of a session on the topic of “Designing Projects that Work for Both Today’s Developers/Operators & Tomorrow’s Residents—Architectural Opportunities and Challenges” at the Tenth Annual InterFace Student Housing Conference April 4-6 in Austin, Texas. 

Long-considered one of the best attended and most prestigious gatherings in the student housing industry, the InterFace Student Housing Conference brings together more than 1,200 student housing industry leaders from both off- and on-campus to discuss and share the growth in the industry.

Gary Brock, AIA, one of the founding partners of CBA, stated: “I am so proud of how Mary worked her way up the ladder step-by-step at this major national student housing conference to be in a position to represent CBA among all the top leaders in the industry. It took several years of being willing to take on smaller roles to work up to this level of exposure. This event is seen by all the major players in the student housing industry, and you can’t get much better exposure in the industry.”

Moltzan is a National Green Building Standards Verifier. Since joining CBA in 1994, Mary has worked on a wide variety of residential projects from mid-rise garden apartment buildings to ocean front high-rise condominiums with parking garages. Whether a garden apartment complex or a high-rise condominium project, Mary understands that the dwelling units must be desirable in function and livability, meet ever-changing government regulations and still be constructed economically and efficiently. Mary approaches every project knowing that it has its own site challenges and requires close coordination with civic and landscape professionals. She has become proficient as a designer of a luxurious living experience at all market levels while solving the myriad of technical issues that always occur. She takes great care to meet client’s criteria while complying with all the regulations and construction requirements.
