W&A Engineering is delighted to announce that CEO and President, Jon Williams, ALSA, PLA has recently been appointed to the Georgia Board of Landscape Architects by Governor Brian Kemp. The Georgia General Assembly created the Georgia State Board of Landscape Architects in 1958 for the purpose of protecting the public health, safety, and welfare by regulating those who engage in the practice of landscape architecture.
For more than 20 years, Jon has designed, permitted, and managed large scale construction and development projects in the Athens, Georgia, area, Southeast, and across the United States. Projects range from $1M one-acre commercial sites to the $200M Caterpillar Plant, which was the largest economic development project in the State of Georgia at the time. Jon has worked in over forty states and been responsible for more than three billion dollars of multifamily projects for the largest student multifamily developer in the nation.
In this role as a Board Member of the Georgia Board of Landscape Architects, the Board has the authority to adopt rules, set standards for licensure, adopt mandatory standards of professional conduct, and investigate and discipline unauthorized, negligent or incompetent practice. The Board also licenses landscape architects. Please help us congratulate Jon on this prestigious accomplishment.
