After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin in 1999, he joined engineering consultant ccrd, which was acquired by WSP in 2014. Key recent projects include Dell Children’s Medical Center, which was the first hospital in the world to achieve Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum Certification and Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
With a keen interest in outdoor pursuits from camping to cycling, Nolan also enjoys mentoring junior colleagues. In 2012, Nolan was named by the US weekly Engineering News-Record (ENR) as one of the country’s ‘top 40 engineers under 40’.
