Woolpert Welcomes Jim Kendall as Federal Program Director at Virginia Beach Office

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (Feb. 19, 2020) — Jim Kendall, PE, has joined Woolpert as a federal program director at the firm’s Virginia Beach office, where he’ll lead multidisciplinary teams to design and execute military facility and infrastructure projects.

For over 30 years, Kendall, a Virginia Military Institute graduate, has put his electrical engineering skills to work in project and program management for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), U.S. Air Force (USAF) and U.S. Coast Guard. Kendall previously served as chief of the design management section at the USACE Norfolk District and worked with the Federal Design Construction Center as the electrical engineer project manager for the Coast Guard.


Kendall said Woolpert has a solid reputation in the federal market for attention to detail, completing projects in a timely manner and possessing a wealth of knowledge in military design.

“I love the fact that Woolpert provides essentially a turnkey product and is heading into the future with both promise and stability and a wide diversity of clients,” Kendall said.

Woolpert Military Market Director David Ziegman said Kendall’s experience executing architecture and engineering contracts with U.S. military clients will help advance Woolpert’s vision and strategy.

“Jim has a long history of being hands-on with complex federal planning, programming and design programs,” Ziegman said. “Adding him to our team augments Woolpert’s well-established architecture and engineering expertise and extends our ability to serve our valued, long-term clients in the USACE, the USAF and the Coast Guard.”
