Garvin Design Group’s Brittany Lapple Earns Architecture Licensure

Garvin Design Group is pleased to announce that Brittany Lapple recently earned licensure as a registered architect. Lapple’s licensure follows the successful completion of the rigorous, six-part Architect Registration Examination (ARE) and certification by the South Carolina Board of Architectural Examiners. Lapple is now one of Garvin Design Group’s 10 licensed architects.   
“Becoming a registered architect has always been a dream of mine,” Lapple said. “I’m very excited to be at this point in my career and to continue working with the firm that supported me on my path to licensure.”
Lapple first joined Garvin Design Group as an intern in the years between her undergraduate and graduate studies at Clemson University’s School of Architecture. As a student, she completed an internship with Clemson’s Lowcountry Digital Preservation Institute and was a member of the IPAL program in Charleston. Lapple returned to Garvin Design Group full-time following the completion of her graduate studies in May 2022. She has already gained extensive design experience on projects spanning various market sectors statewide.
