Alicia Niebrzydowski, Staff Architect

WDP Office: New York

Alicia assists project managers in field investigations, non-destructive testing, and document preparation on a wide variety of projects ranging from schools and airports to historic theaters.

For the past year, Alicia has worked as a Cases Panel Volunteer with the Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland, where she researched and presented on cases of architectural interventions within Edinburgh and their impact. Alicia also worked as an intern with Grebski Civil Engineering Services during the summer of 2020.

“I chose to pursue architecture because of the exciting medley it brings between practicality and creativity. Throughout my studies, I became particularly interested in both the social and physical impact of reusing existing buildings, which led me to pursue further study in architectural conservation at the University of Edinburgh. There, as I lived in an 18th-century century building with original single-pane windows, I became acutely aware of the importance of comfort in adaptive reuse. Through all this, I have found myself excited by the unique challenges posed by designing existing buildings and passionate about creating a positive experience for the human body within such spaces. My role with WDP allows me to work toward making the built landscape more beautiful, comfortable, and safe, one building at a time.”
