Bill is recognized as a Fellow for his distinguished body of design and planning work and for its technical innovation. Throughout 35-year career, he has demonstrated the highest levels of expertise as the project leader and champion of healthcare, national museum and archival and cultural venues secure federal facilities and strategic planning projects. His portfolio demonstrates a unique ability to make groundbreaking technical achievements with national impact.   

Bill’s work includes projects that heal Veterans, improve healthcare delivery and preserve cultural heritage. He helped build a new system of care for healing traumatic brain injury and was a national program manager for a contract to streamline planning and rationalize capital outlay for the Department of Veterans Affairs. He is also recognized as one of the foremost experts on archival design. He was keynote speaker at the National Archives and Records Administration national meeting and has programmed and designed more than 2.5 million feet of archival space in museums, cultural venues and government institutions.  

In his endorsement letter for Bill’s Fellowship application, Hal Davis, FAIA, said, “Bill consistently demonstrates an ability to respond to complex, unique, multi-disciplinary challenges, at diverse scales, with systems and strategies that perform.”
