Abraham Jayson, the principal of the firm, was also the project manager and architect for the net-zero energy Hayward Library, LEED Gold certified Los Gatos Library, and award winning and nationally recognized Half Moon Bay Library. The firm is currently working on building improvements to six branch libraries of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries. Abraham Jayson will be the main point of contact for the Project.”
