William R. Nash P.E., Senior Project Manager
  | 571.292.9830  | VCARD

Bill professional expertise in facilities and building envelope projects includes a variety of technical disciplines ranging from preconstruction building envelope coordination to construction inspections and forensic investigations.

“What I love about the work I do at WDP is knowing more today than I did yesterday, but less than what I’ll know tomorrow.  While buildings, bridges and piers have been constructed for centuries, the industry is constantly evolving – pushing the envelope so to speak. Having worked on the construction side of the table for many years, I can attest first-hand that you cannot inspect quality into a project.  My goal is to assist the project team in navigating through all the technical criteria to manage the risks associated with building enclosure design, construction, and commissioning.  I enjoy helping teams move buildings forward to ever more effective performance levels.”
