Janet Meyer, AIA

Janet joined BCT in 2009 to establish BCT's housing studio. Having been involved in a wide range of projects in both the private and public sectors throughout her career, Janet specializes in senior living and multi-family housing. Her responsibilities, along with co-housing principal Scot Foster, include supervising the overall design and management of every housing project and the quality assurance process for the studio. With nearly twenty years of experience, Janet has been integrally involved with the design and construction of more than 1500 housing units.  Most recently, she completed a large, award-winning adaptive reuse project in downtown Baltimore that was awarded significant State and Federal Historic Tax Credits. She believes that successful residential projects—whether for seniors or millennials—require solid design principles, creativity and comprehensive market knowledge combined with the appropriate amenities.

Prior to joining BCT, she was a Principal, Project Manager and Project Architect on a variety of senior living projects throughout the country at CSD Architects. She is a registered architect in the State of Maryland.

Janet received her Master of Architecture in 1997 from the University of Maryland School of Architecture and her undergraduate degree from Dickinson College. She is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), American Seniors Housing Association (ASHA), Urban Land Institute (ULI), International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), and Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW), Baltimore Chapter.

"We never come into a project knowing how it should look. We always start with a fresh perspective because we have much to learn from the client, locale and end user."
