Hoffmann Architects Promotes Daniel Bishop to Senior Architect
January 2022 – Hoffmann Architects, an architecture and engineering firm specializing in the rehabilitation of building exteriors, announces that Daniel Bishop, AIA, with the Virginia office, has earned a promotion.
Daniel L. Bishop, AIA has been promoted to Senior Architect, in recognition of his leadership, technical expertise, and contributions to building enclosure projects. Bishop celebrated his 10-year anniversary with Hoffmann Architects in November, having joined the firm in 2011 as a Project Representative directly after completing a Master of Architecture degree at the State University of New York at Buffalo. While a student, Bishop also studied at the Aarhus School of Architecture in Denmark. At Hoffmann Architects, he rapidly distinguished himself as a quick study of building envelope design and rehabilitation, earning promotions to Project Coordinator in 2014, Senior Project Coordinator in 2015, and Project Architect in 2017.
As Senior Architect, Bishop conducts comprehensive on-site investigations of building enclosure conditions and leads project teams in developing drawings and specifications for rehabilitation and new construction consultation. He performs site visits during construction to observe the quality of work, conducts job progress meetings, monitors contractors’ construction schedules, reviews shop drawings and product data/samples, evaluates contractor requests for details and changes, and coordinates with the entire project team.
Respected by colleagues, coworkers, and clients for his knowledge and experience of facade, roof, and plaza assemblies, Bishop has published technical articles in the Hoffmann Architects JOURNAL, as well as in Building Operating Management, Facility Maintenance Decisions, FacilitiesNet, and Building Design+Construction. His recent projects include terra cotta tile investigation at Union Station in Washington DC, exterior envelope restoration at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Chantilly VA, facade replacement at the Verizon tower in Newark NJ, and plaza accessibility improvements at the Smithsonian Institution Freer Gallery of Art.
He lives in Fort Washington, Maryland with his wife, Amanda, where he has been hunkered down during the pandemic and spending time with a hands-on renovation of their home. As that work comes to a completion, he is looking forward venturing into wood working.
