Bill joined RADA Architects in 1997 bringing broad experience in the technical aspects of architecture and construction. For 30 years he has been a major participant in the design and development of a variety of building types: high-rise and mid-rise office and residential buildings, student residences, museums, clinics, laboratories, and airport facilities.
Prior to joining RADA Architects, Bill had long associations with Nagle Hartray & Associates and Lohan Associates. During his tenure with these firms, he was involved in diverse projects, among them: Student Residence Halls at Northwestern University (with Nagle Hartray & Associates), 420 East Ohio 42 stories residential high-rise (with Lohan Associates), Shedd Aquarium Expansion, Blue Cross Blue Shield Headquarters in Chicago (with Lohan Associates). Following the design phase of the latter project, he moved to Walsh Construction Company as a project manager until construction completion.
As a principal at RADA Architects, Bill is responsible for project development and technical consistency, while involved in the ideas and concepts emerging from RADA’s studio environment. His leadership has created a client reliance on RADA’s excellent technical documentation to implement a range of challenging projects for new and creative solutions, as well as for renovation assignments.
A testimony to his technical competence and problem solving skills are the long standing relationships with clients such as: DOA City of Chicago for the RSIP projects at the Chicago airports; Wheaton College, Aurora University and Illinois State University for a number of student residence halls; CPS for the Capital Improvement Program, University of Chicago and University of Illinois at Chicago hospital projects.
Bill and Rada share a passion for architecture. They complement each other with their individual talents – Rada is a generator of concepts and ideas, Bill is the bearer of creative solutions to completion. Their association brings a powerful message of opportunities and expanding boundaries in architecture.
Bill is an avid photographer. His hobby has taken him to the savannas of Africa, the glaciers and geysers of Iceland, with a focus on nature and its beauty.
