NASHVILLE (AP) — The State Building Commission has unanimously voted to name Peter Heimbach as Tennessee's new state architect.

The state architect oversees the state Capitol and its grounds, along with the state's other building and land development projects. He also develops design standards for state agencies.

Heimbach succeeds Bob Oglesby, who was named commissioner of the state Department of General Services in August.

Heimbach is a graduate of the University of Tennessee's architecture program and spent 12 years at the architectural firm Beeson, Lusk and Street Inc.

In his previous role he has served as the executive director of Tennessee's Real Estate Asset Management.
