Jason McClellan joins W&A Engineering Athens as the newest member of our Civil Engineering department headquartered in the Classic City. Jason joins the W&A team with over two decades of experience working in civil site design in both the public and private sectors.
As a Project Civil Designer, Jason assists his fellow Civil Engineering team members with design and engineering. He favors a community-focused design approach and believes the built environment should be a safe, positive, and equitable experience not just for a site’s intimate users but for navigable and passive activities, as well.
“I feel a need to understand the impact a project may have within the adjacent areas and the need to incorporate a positive experience for the current and future users of the space,” Jason said.
Before joining W&A Engineering, Jason spent thirteen years with Athens-Clarke County Unified Government as a Land Development Inspector and the County’s Engineering/Designer Coordinator. In this role, he developed a true proficiency in coordinating local public-sector projects, oftentimes working with W&A Engineering on various sites around the county.
When he’s not building better communities in the office, Jason enjoys mountain biking in North Georgia and Western North Carolina with his family, playing the drums, snowboarding, and going for a mind-clearing run. He also loves indulging in whatever vegan options are on the menu at local restaurant Big City Bread.
Having worked with W&A Engineering during his tenure with Athens-Clarke County, Jason is excited to see W&A’s community- and sustainability-focused design philosophy unfold from the opposite side of the desk, having been consistently “impressed with design changes and collaboration” from the W&A team over the years.
“So far, I have experienced a very warm welcome and a fantastic team environment,” Jason said.
We’re so excited to have Jason McClellan as a part of the W&A Engineering team, and we can’t wait to see how you build better communities with us for many years to come!
