Robert joined DLR Group in 1986, and has been responsible for the successful completion of millions of square feet of workplace, manufacturing, and education buildings and spaces. Robert is an expert in navigating code and permitting requirements. Project teams and clients both value his attention to detail in documentation and deliverables, and his passion for quality.
His expertise includes critical operations facilities, and projects entailing advanced technology infrastructures, systems redundancy needs, diverse operations requirements, and complex project delivery needs. He has led teams to meet the challenges presented by the forward-thinking facilities programs of business leaders including Amazon.com, Verizon Wireless, and Boeing as well as the GSA, municipalities and school districts.
"Design success depends on details: the thinking that went into the concept, the consideration of how the intent of that concept is communicated to the contractor and the quality of the construction documents, and the craft that the contractor brings in executing it."
Robert's recent work includes the DBIA award-winning design-build modernization of the Henry M. Jackson Federal Building. He served as project manager for Boeing's new Everett Delivery Center, and more recently on Boeing's new Seattle Deliver Center - facilities with a complex program mix of airport, workplace, and events-center spaces that serve as a final touch point in Boeing customers' experience of the company's brand and airplanes. He also was a team member for the Wayne. L. Morse United States Courthouse. This project was so successful that the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) made it a case study in how to carry out integrated design and delivery of GSA projects.
