Bill manages some of the firm’s most significant healthcare projects for U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the U.S. Navy. They include the National Intrepid Center of Excellence in Bethesda, Maryland, and the Center for the Intrepid in San Antonio, Texas, two of the world’s most advanced rehabilitation facilities for wounded soldiers. Based on the overwhelming success of these and other federal projects, Bill is the sole A/E industry member in a VA work group established to streamline the agency’s project delivery process. Bill also served as the national program manager for the VA Integrated Planning IDIQ, which SmithGroup held in all three VA regions. Bill’s outstanding team leadership and design skills have been recognized with multiple awards. But the ones he’s most proud of are the six Building Design + Construction Team Awards he and his team have received. "I have been honored and humbled to work on spectacular projects with terrific, creative and intelligent people," he says. Always up for a challenge, Bill would like to learn to kite surf.
