Aviation architect Julie Wienberg has joined architecture and design firm Perkins&Will to oversee airport planning and design services.

Wienberg, who is based in Perkins&Will’s Denver studio, brings 26 years of experience in the planning, design and management of complex aviation and transportation projects across the country, including the development, integration and delivery of new terminals, concourses and expansions. She has served as lead architect and technical advisor, with responsibilities ranging from project development and procurement to project management and stakeholder dialog facilitation. She has also been a member of the board of directors for the Airports Consultants Council (ACC) since December 2022.

Among Wienberg’s past clients are Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas, Chicago O’Hare International Airport in Illinois, Denver International Airport in Colorado, Des Moines International Airport in Iowa, George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Texas, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Arizona, San Diego International Airport in California, Tampa International Airport in Florida, Tucson International Airport in Arizona, United Airlines, and Wichita Dwight D Eisenhower National Airport in Kansas.

Wienberg’s arrival coincides with the second instalment of federal grant funding to US airports under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which provides US$5bn over five years to improve the nation’s aging airport infrastructure. This, combined with its expectation that domestic air traffic will swell beyond pre-pandemic levels in 2023, had led Perkins&Will to conclude that its aviation services are poised for rapid growth.

Wienberg commented, “Over the next several years, as airports large and small embark on major improvement projects with annual grants from the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Terminal Program, as well as significant private funding, airport leaders will need experienced, trustworthy partners to help them deliver these transformations. I look forward to new and continued collaborations with these clients – and to bringing their visions to life with the incredible talent, research and technologies that only Perkins&Will can offer.”

James McGrath, chair of Perkins&Will’s transportation practice, said, “Julie’s client-centric focus and commitment to delivering the results our aviation clients expect make her a valuable and trusted advisor. We are thrilled to have her, grateful for her expertise, and confident in her ability to successfully lead us through this exciting period of growth and opportunity.”
