“The pandemic has changed the nature of how public and private facilities function, with a distributed workforce becoming the norm,” Wiederholt said. “As we gradually return to the workplace, facilities will evolve into a hybrid model for remote and in-person work styles. With this in mind, we must evolve our design practice, embracing flexibility and sustainability to create robust and resilient facilities. The facilities of tomorrow must possess advanced building envelopes with energy-efficient mechanical and electrical systems, creating an enhanced built environment. HGA provides the design resources and research expertise to help clients reimagine their facilities."
Wiederholt has more than 18 years of experience designing and managing projects for education, government, corporate, industrial, and aviation clients. His expertise includes planning, programming, design, project management, and sustainable energy strategies.
