The Boston Architectural College congratulates Brian M. Curley, B.Arch '86, on being named president and managing principal of PDT Architects in Portland, Maine.

Brian M. Curley, AIA, LEED AP, succeeds David C. Webster, AIA, LEED AP, a founding principal who has led the firm for 38 years. Webster will continue in an advisory role, running the federal/VA healthcare market sector while Curley heads the corporate/financial/housing sectors.

Brian worked at several Boston and Portland architectural firms before joining PDT in 1996. He was named principal in 2003. His most prominent local projects include Meetinghouse Lofts, a condo conversion of the former Roosevelt School in South Portland; 179 John Roberts Road, the Sappi corporate headquarters; Gorham Municipal Center; and new and renovated branches for Cumberland County, TruChoice, and Casco Federal Credit Unions. Since being named a principal in 2003, Curley has strengthened PDT's office/ interiors/ housing practices with clients such as UNUM, MEMIC, J.B.
