"I came to GZA after spending eight years at a small consulting company and then four years at a large design firm. I was drawn to GZA because of its small office camaraderie with large firm project opportunities and technical resources. Add in colleagues who share a common passion for our work and the goal of advancing GZA as a 21st century engineering consulting firm, and you end up with a work environment that is second to none."
