Kim Smith

AIA, LEED AP BD+C

Associate Principal

Kim was the first female Associate Principal of VMDO Architects. Her design leadership is characterized by an attentive management style and commitment to in-depth problem-solving and follow-through at every phase of a project. Her roles at VMDO include leading VMDO's Staff Development Advocacy Group and providing HR support.

Kim brings over twenty years of experience to the VMDO team, both in the role as project architect and project manager. Kim is inspired by projects of all sizes, whether new construction or renovation projects, and sustains that enthusiasm through the duration of the multi-year contracts. Her focus on detail, process, and project standards are well-suited to her past roles in project management of projects such as Washington & Lee’s Student Commons and Tidewater Community College Chesapeake's New Student Center, where the project stakeholders were great in number and divergent in interests.
