New Year’s Declarations

CMA  is pleased to announce the expansion of our dedicated team of Architects


Melanie Strieder joined the Charles Matsinger team as an Architectural Designer last spring.  She is currently completing her final year at Drexel University, and has 3 years of design experience in healthcare, higher education, laboratory, corporate office and master planning projects. Melanie’s strong researching skills and attention to detail provide effective project design and execution. In addition, her experience with BIM allows for efficient project coordination and delivery by taking advantage of the latest software and industry advances.

Melanie is a member of both the American Institute of Architecture Students and the U.S. Green Building Council, Central PA Chapter.  On coming aboard with Charles Matsinger Associates, Melanie reports “I am excited to be working in such a collaborative and architecturally diverse environment.  CMA really offers the ability to grow as an architect and learn the industry from the inside out. I am especially looking forward to the projects and teams I will be working with while at CMA.”

Melanie is great asset, and a welcome addition to the Charles Matsinger team.
