Alexis D. Kurtz

Back to Leadership

Alexis, with 20+ years of experience in the field of architectural acoustics, vibration control, and sustainable design, is known as a specialist in the acoustic design of educational facilities. Her reputation for managing multi-disciplinary teams, supervising projects from visioning through to opening is well documented. We had our eyes on her well before she joined our firm in 2019.

As lead acoustician for Deerfield Academy’s Math Science and Technology Center, The New Classroom Building at Virginia Tech, the Edward St. John Teaching and Learning Center at the Iribe Center for Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Maryland, Peterson Hall at George Mason University and the Jamail Lecture Hall at the Columbia School of Journalism, she has developed a pedagogy of her own. In fact, when she isn’t designing acoustics for educational facilities or healthcare buildings, museums, or transportation structures, where she also brings years of expertise, she can be found mentoring young women advance their engineering careers.

Alexis is an INCE Board Certified Acoustician, having earned the recognition of the highest professional capability in the practice of Noise Control Engineering. She is one of those engineers who Cerami is proud to say never stops learning, as can be seen by her myriad of accreditations and various expert panels on which she serves.
