Triangle Business Journal honors the president of Tonic Design + Tonic Construction.
Katherine Hogan, AIA, partner and principal of Tonic Design + Tonic Construction in Raleigh, has received a 2014 Women in Business Award from Triangle Business Journal (TBJ) in the "Future Star" category.
According to TBJ, the Women in Business Awards program recognizes Triangle women “who have proven to be dynamic and outstanding leaders with established track records of significant accomplishments in business and/or community service.”
Hogan, 32, is a licensed architect and a LEED-accredited professional. Last year, the national professional journal Residential Architect named Hogan and her partner/husband, Vincent Petrarca, 2013’s "Rising Stars" out of all young architects/architectural firms in the nation. Also in 2013, Green Building & Design, a national magazine focused on sustainable design and construction, singled Hogan out as an "Architect To Watch."
Hogan joined the Raleigh design-build firm in 2008. Since then, Tonic Design + Tonic Construction has completed over 50 projects and received 20 major design awards and other honors, including a national American Institute of Architects (AIA) Small Projects Award for the Lowe’s Pavilion in the North Carolina Museum of Art Sculpture Garden. Since Hogan joined the firm, Tonic has become nationally known for Modern, cost-effective, environmentally sustainable projects, especially residential and small-scale commercial projects.
