Woolpert is the premier architecture, engineering, geospatial (AEG) and strategic consulting firm, with a vision to become one of the best companies in the world. Founded in 1911, Woolpert’s aviation history dates to work performed for Orville Wright in their shared hometown of Dayton, Ohio. Over the last few decades, Woolpert’s aviation group has grown extensively, innovating within and across its AEG markets to help public and private airports, airport tenants, state aviation departments and private developers navigate complex projects and issues.
A leader in aviation engineering, Woolpert works closely with the Federal Aviation Administration and state departments of transportation to maximize funding while providing compliant and cost-efficient design. Adept at both airside and landside airport developments, Woolpert possesses an arsenal of airborne, ground-based and subsurface data collection capabilities to support dense, reliable and accurate geospatial data. Its in-house research and development team consistently evaluates emerging technologies—from developing airfield design guidelines for large unmanned aircraft systems to exploring vertiport infrastructure and airspace needs for advanced air mobility—to help airports improve, advance and succeed.
In the last few years, Woolpert has integrated industry-leading aviation experts from across the country to form its strategic consulting team. This group supports Woolpert deliverables and its airport clients around the world, helping them achieve better resource management and improved return on investment through proven best practices.
An ENR Top 150 Global Design Firm, Woolpert has over 1,300 employees and 42 offices in three countries. The firm recently earned its fifth-straight Great Place to Work certification and actively nurtures a culture of growth, inclusion, diversity and respect. For more, visit woolpert.com.
