Holly Lennihan Joins CannonDesign’s Science + Technology Practice as Vice President

Holly Lennihan, RA, LEED AP, has joined CannonDesign’s award-winning Science + Technology practice.

She joins us with two decades of experience and is a seasoned project manager, working with clients across markets and regions of all sizes. She is a strong advocate of both sustainable design solutions and high-performance building design. In her new role, Holly acts as strategic advisor to her clients, currently working with both the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Matan Inc.

“CannonDesign is a place where I will learn a lot,” Holly said. “It is already happening. Listening to scientists at NREL use words like ‘perovskites.’ Yes, those crystalline structures used to fabricate photovoltaic cells. So cool. So beautiful.”

Holly is active in both professional and community outreach. She serves on multiple regional sustainable building councils in Washington, DC and is on MIT’s Building Innovations Hub advisory board. Holly served for over 20 years on the Board of Directors of Mi Casa—a nonprofit affordable housing developer committed to providing quality affordable housing to low and moderate households in the Washington DC area.
