Michael McManus Joins IA’s New York Office as Project Director

Continuing IA Interior Architects’ strong commitment to the New York City community, we are pleased to announce that Michael McManus, LEED AP has joined the firm as Project Director. Michael brings over 25 years of experience—including at IA's New York office 1995-2000—in workplace interiors for global technology, financial, media, and other professional service companies. His primary focus will be on expanding IA's presence in the local market and managing complex projects.

Michael is an active mentor, inspiring and motivating his team by offering and supporting creative design and planning decisions that are in-line with clients' project goals, schedules, and budgets, all with a rigorous, detail-oriented approach. His community volunteer work includes co-founding a local chapter of "Habitat for Humanity" and serving as Co-Chair of the Design & Construction Committee for a local religious institution.


It is great to be back in IA's New York office collaborating with an awesome team of design professionals. I am impressed with how IA has grown and developed into a global design leader.
