Huzefa Irfani, AIA, is Gannett Fleming’s new Architectural Practice leader.
His primary responsibilities as a leader at the global infrastructure and engineering firm will include bolstering the practice’s presence across the firm’s 60 offices nationwide by implementing new technologies, providing technical guidance and improving operational efficiencies.
