Wheaton Sprague Building Envelope hired two new team members and moved another to a different department this month.
Paul Griese has been hired as senior design consultant for the company’s building envelope consulting division. Griese worked most recently as project manager for Fabbrica, where he managed unitized curtainwall projects with material sourcing from international vendors, involving major developers, architects and envelope consultants. His past experience includes nine years with Curtainwall Design Consulting.
“The recent addition of Paul Griese to our building enclosure consulting staff brings all the more value to our clients that seek specialist expertise in this realm. Prior to joining our firm, Paul was a design consultant at another leading building envelope consulting firm where I had worked,” says vice president Mark Coulis. “Paul is truly a building enclosure expert in façade claddings and enclosures of all types. During his career, he has achieved remarkable success with design, condition assessment, and construction administration functions. We are delighted that Paul has joined us, and are confident that he will continue to fortify our mission to be the best at what we do.”
In addition, Bob Bartolt will join the company’s Cincinnati office as a design consultant.
Bartolt is a registered architect experienced in all phases of the design and construction process. He hails most recently from VSWC Architects in Mason, Ohio, where he served for two and a half years as senior project architect and project manager.
“Having Bob Bartolt join our Cincinnati office brings added depth to our highly qualified and experienced team. I have known Bob for more than 30 years and have tremendous respect for his skills as a practicing architect and building envelope specialist,” says Michael Smith, branch office manager. “Bob has well-rounded experience with a variety of complex buildings. Over the years, Bob has led design teams on several K-12 schools, military installations and other public and institutional buildings. Bob is a knowledgeable and detail-oriented, technically-proficient architect with a deep understanding of buildings and cladding systems. I am excited to be working with Bob again and look forward to applying our collective skills on projects.”
Anthony Mangione will join the company’s building envelope consulting department as an intern architect. Mangione started with Wheaton Sprague in the drafting, design and modeling department where he served a few months as a project design technician.
He recently worked at Westlake, Reed, Leskosky (WRL), an architecture firm in Northeast Ohio. At WRL, Mangione was as a designer and intern architect. He served as project architect of Denison University’s new Performing Arts Center and assisted with construction document drawings of many other projects including Struthers Library Theatre, Green and Blue Lot Hopkins Airport Canopies and the Pearl of the Orient, a Szechuan restaurant in Shaker Heights.
“We are glad to welcome Tony to our design, drafting and modeling team,” says vice president Richard Sprague. “He shows a lot of potential with a strong desire to learn and grow. That, coupled with his solid experience and education, should take him a long way toward being a valued contributor on our projects.”
