Building a practice
When Ray joined our team, he brought extensive expertise in the life sciences market. He has since built our life sciences practice to be one of our largest market sectors. As our Practice Leader for life sciences, he frequently authors and speaks on engineering topics for these types of spaces. Ray is a well-regarded expert in best practices for laboratory design.
Ray manages our DC office. And while he has many responsibilities associated with overseeing a busy practice in a demanding market, Ray always, always makes time to mentor our team members. He is also actively involved in developing our East Bay office. More recently, he has led WB’s efforts to help our clients find solutions to improve indoor air quality and reduce tenants’ exposure to COVID-19.
Ray’s work (completed in collaboration with Delta Engineers) was recognized at the ACEC’s Engineering Excellence Awards. He oversaw our team’s 3D laser scanning work to collect data of AstraZeneca’s campus. The data was used to create a digital model of the campus for AstraZeneca’s facility management team. They use the model to track building performance, improve energy efficiency, evaluate upgrades, and make construction decisions.
