RALEIGH, N.C. – Lou Jurkowski, chief executive officer of BJAC, pa , an architectural firm that offers professional services for specialized, complex institutional projects, has announced that Amanda Holloway, interior designer, has earned the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ).

Holloway received her bachelor’s degree in interior design from Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C., where she was a student member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and the International Interior Design Association (IIDA). Holloway has been certified as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Accredited Professional (AP) by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), which means she has demonstrated a thorough understanding of green building practices and principles as well as a familiarity with LEED requirements, resources and processes.
