Senior Principal/Partner

William, or Bart as he is known by most, started his career nearly four decades ago as a structural engineer for a major precast, prestressed concrete contractor company.  His experience with product development and testing and with field personnel provided Bart with valuable insight and understanding of constructability. His early experience has shaped Bart’s approach to projects. To this day he works closely with each project’s construction manager to select the most appropriate framing system for the building type and local construction practices.

Bart has earned a national reputation for the design of sport facilities, which include eight NFL stadiums, four Major League ballparks, two arenas and a convention center.  He has also designed office buildings, retail facilities, hotels, parking garages, airport concourses, and residential structures.  The location of his projects range from New England to Grand Cayman and west to St. Louis and involve a variety of foundation types and soil conditions including glacial till, sinkholes and structures over water, with design considerations varying from freezing conditions to tropical hurricanes and earthquakes.
