With her background in design-build and construction project management, Wylie recognizes the importance of pursuing design solutions that are founded on candid conversations about the realities of budget, construction process and client requirements. By using the most current technology, like virtual reality and digital 3-D modeling, she is able to provide clear communication with the client and create efficiencies in the design process. Wylie has grown PBDG from a concept to a successful and expanding practice with a team of great employees and many pleased clients. She is excited for the future of PBDG and the privilege to design buildings that respond to clients’ desires and weave into the fabric of the rapidly expanding built environment of Austin and beyond.
