James Lorenzin, Staff Architect

WDP Office: Manassas

James assists project managers in field investigations and testing, project document reviews and developments, and construction oversight. James’ prior experience with AutoCAD and historic building conservation caters him more to architectural surveying and recording.

“My background in Historic Preservation has given me a unique opportunity to learn how architecture and engineering of the past applies to our contemporary buildings.  I was lucky enough, in my previous employment, to assist in projects like the masonry conservation of some of the most important memorial structures in Arlington National Cemetery.  I sought employment with WDP & Associates because of the variety of projects that it boasts including different locations, built environments, materials, and conditions.  I always look forward to learning from the challenges that arise with each individual project.”
