Cromwell Architects Engineers has promoted Emily Hill to a new role as interior designer at the firm after recently passed the Council for Interior Design Qualification three-part NCIDQ examination.
As an interior designer, Hill will be taking on increased responsibility for projects and filling in on lead design roles for projects. She has worked on multiple projects at Cromwell, where she has served as an intern interior designer since 2016. Her projects include the Ozarks Medical Center, Arkansas Specialty Orthopaedics and the SAU Fire Training Academy.
“Passage of the NCIDQ is a major milestone in the career path for interior designers. We celebrate Emily’s achievement in accomplishing this personal and professional goal,” Cynthia Hawkins, director of interior design, said in a statement.
Hill obtained a bachelor’s degree in interior design from Harding University.
Another Cromwell interior designer, Amanda Benham, also recently passed an examination, earning the Certified Healthcare Interior Designer (CHID) certificate in the process. Benham passed the American Academy of Healthcare Interior Designer examination to be awarded the certificate.
“We are excited for Amanda’s latest achievement in acquiring this prestigious certification, Hawkins said. “It reflects the level of expertise she has worked to achieve in the interior design of each healthcare related project she produces through the Cromwell studio. Amanda’s achievement is a great added value to our client’s, as we are now able to provide a higher level of care and service.”
Benham graduated from the University of Arkansas with a bachelor’s degree in interior design in 2001 and became a state Registered Interior Designer in 2004. She has worked at Cromwell for 16 years.
