Nicole Graycar is a seasoned architect and project manager with more than 10 years of experience directing projects from concept through occupancy and beyond. She manages all aspects of design and construction – from hiring architects and contractors to executing contracts and due diligence. She might look like the youngest and shortest person in the room, but don’t be fooled. As client Tyian Battle has said, “she’s a pistol" and as a woman in this line of work, she needs to be. In her high heels, of course.

Nicole brings a mixture of professionalism and approachability to every job; you might say it’s her secret sauce. Her strong technical background and attention to detail, coupled with her communication and public speaking skills, don’t hurt either.

The name cd squared is a tribute to Nicole’s mom – Carol’s Daughter Consulting and Development. Her mom, who passed away when Nicole was 5 years old, is Nicole’s deep source of inspiration.To know Nicole is to know that she is Carol’s daughter.
