Mosaic Associates Architects announced that Associate Principal Callie Gaspary and Architectural Designer Amanda Vottis recently completed the Advanced Academy for Designing Learning Spaces to become Accredited Learning Environments Planners (ALEP).

According to A4LE, those who receive the ALEP credential represent the “highest qualification in our profession.”

“The A4LE is the only professional organization whose principal focus is improving the places where children learn,” said Mosaic Principal Mike Fanning. “The accreditation is a glowing affirmation of Callie’s and Amanda’s knowledge, work, and commitment to education.”

Mosaic Associates Architects is an award-winning, 37-person architectural firm located in Troy, N.Y. that specializes in designing for education, an expertise developed over the firm’s 150 years of continuous practice.
