“I am excited to join such a bright team of visionaries led by Richard Hannum at Forge DevelopmentPartners,” said de Quesada. “I look forward to developing future design solutions with Forge to meet its mission of providing privately-financed housing for essential workers that have all the modern technological amenities and sustainable features we expect in Essential Housing of the future.”

De Quesada has proven himself as a leader in the development of time and cost-efficient cutting-edge
structural system designs for both multifamily residential and commercial projects. His designs can be
found in the Opera Plaza, the San Francisco Merchandise Mart Extension (Mart 2) and a variety of
condominium and office buildings in San Francisco as well as the Mercy and Scripps Memorial hospitals
in San Diego. He got his start in Havana, Cuba in the 1950s before immigrating to California and founding
his own architectural firm in 1964. Since then, de Quesada has developed a variety of innovative
construction methods including developing the Pueblo structural system of shop-fabricated welded
steel components and developing Urbanis, an integrated construction system that uses off-site
prefabricated modular components. Each of these offer substantial construction savings, which is key
for essential housing projects in urban markets like San Francisco where it can be expensive to build
multi-family homes.

 

“I am excited to join such a bright team of visionaries led by Richard Hannum at Forge Development
Partners,” said de Quesada. “I look forward to developing future design solutions with Forge to meet its
mission of providing privately-financed housing for essential workers that have all the modern
technological amenities and sustainable features we expect in Essential Housing of the future.”
