Jacob Yates, Staff Architect

Jacob assists project managers in field investigations and testing, structural analysis, project document reviews and developments, and construction oversight.

At WDP, I’m fueled by a drive to, “always be learning”.  Through our diversity of projects, I’ve had the privilege of gaining valuable experience and learning from industry professionals within and outside of the company. Switching between office work and working in the field has enabled me to feel the thrill of discovery and contribute to enduring engineering solutions. WDP gives me the tools to play a role in projects and experiences every day that truly show the intricacies of the built environment around us.
