Ashley Bland

Director | Travois Design

I admit it. We are a little unusual. We design like architects, but we think like business people.

Our design and construction services team works in tandem with the rest of the Travois staff. While we are laser-focused on high-quality, energy-efficient, culturally relevant design, our other colleagues give us a wider perspective. The conversation around the coffeepot, the lunch table or the pool table is bigger than design. I spend my entire day interacting with finance, administration, policy and program experts. This means, when my team designs a new housing or economic development project, we can put ourselves in your shoes.

I spend a lot of time on the road. The odds are you will catch me sitting in an airport or waiting to begin a tribal council or housing board meeting. I don’t mind. All of this travel has given me the time to catch up on my reading (I’ve read the entire Harry Potter series. Twice.) I can also squeeze in some time on Pinterest.

I have more than a decade of experience working on low income housing projects. My favorite part of traveling all these years is spending time with our clients — the best affordable housing developers in America. You do forward-thinking developments that serve great families in strong communities.

Get in touch with me today. We are ready to work with you from the charette phase through grand opening and beyond.
