Joe's commitment to sustainable design throughout his 28-year career has deeply influenced WRT's approach to design. Leading up to his appointment as the firm’s Managing Principal in 2007, his project work included a wide range of historic and adaptive reuse buildings, throughout which he threaded sustainable principles. Joe is part of the core leadership of WRT’s national housing practice, with a particular focus on affordable housing and senior living. He has won numerous awards, most recently for the $4.6-million Blue Ball Dairy Barn in New Castle, Delaware, an historic and adaptive reuse project that garnered both a Gold LEED rating and the highest Honor Award from The American Institute of Architects in Philadelphia. From 2010-2012, Joe served as Chairman of the Board of the Delaware Valley Green Building Council, a nonprofit membership organization whose mission is to transform the Delaware Valley through sustainable and environmentally responsible planning, design, construction and operation of the region’s buildings, landscapes, cities and communities.
