Floyd Stoutt has acquired considerable professional experience, particularly with large-scale government projects designed around the United States and abroad. His responsibilities for Page include generating construction documents, submittal review, and construction administration. Floyd also processes the flow of information between contractor’s and clients, and oversees quality control and management of all phases of construction.
Creativity is an essential component of Floyd’s professional life because, he explains, it “helps to push the envelope of change and innovation. Whatever has been conceived today can be improved upon tomorrow, and this is always my approach when it comes to designing.”
His first role as lead architect on a Page project was for the U.S. Embassy in Monrovia, Liberia, in which the design team incorporated an array of innovative design concepts. The design earned LEED Gold certification, yet Floyd remembers that project for another reason. “The host country had been ravaged by civil wars,” Floyd says, “and it was great to have such a modern and aesthetically pleasing structure exist in an area that to this day still bears the scars of prior wartime fallout.”
Floyd was also part of the design team for the U.S. Consulate Compound in Guayaquil, Ecuador. He served as a project designer for the renovation and upgrade of a newly acquired facility for the 45,000-square-meter site, which contains a main office building and five outbuildings. Additional site improvements included landscaping, perimeter walls/fences, parking, covered walkways, and a lighting system.
For the U.S. Embassy Compound in Antananarivo, Madagascar, he was a project designer sharing responsibility for a chancery building, offices, residences, warehouse facilities, shop functions, a recreational swimming pool, and control functions within the 11-acre compound. Floyd and his team designed the chancery building with references to the rich colors of the surrounding tropical landscape. The design also integrated all appropriate security measures, while meeting requirements for the U.S. Green Building Council’s “LEED Certified” designation.
His greatest accomplishment outside of work has been raising three beautiful daughters, who “mean the world to me,” he says.
Floyd received his Bachelor of Science, Architecture from City College of New York, where he also participated in the City College Academy for Professional Preparation. He is a member of the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA).
