A Little About Me

I am passionate about how the built environment and the learning environment overlap.


Mr. Wilson joined OAI in 2021. After graduation Mr. Wilson worked in New York State with a focus on renovation projects in educational, institutional, and public buildings. In the public arena he has worked on projects with small to multimillion dollar budgets. He understands the nuances between maintenance budgets and capital improvement funding and the different requirements each can require for project compliance.

Mr. Wilson has experience working with project teams during the construction administration phase to keep projects on time and on budget, thereby saving institutional clients money that could be re-purposed for future projects.
