WDG | Architects Engineers Announces New Principal Shannon French, AIA, TSA ‘09
WDG | Architects Engineers is a full-service architecture and mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering firm located in the Central Business District of New Orleans. Our multi-disciplinary team can work either collaboratively on projects, or stand alone as separate architecture and engineering departments, as determined by the needs of each individual client. We create built environments that are thoughtfully designed with comfort, flow, efficiency and cost in mind.
French, AIA, NCARB, LEED GA, Principal and Director of Design for WDG, oversees all architectural design projects in the office with a uniquely artistic and contextual approach. He works closely with WDG’s design staff, clients and contractors, and has a variety of experience working on projects including new construction, renovations, adaptive re-use, historic restorations and conceptual/site master planning. French also has a wealth of volunteer and leadership experience working with high profile civic organizations – most notably the Peace Corps, where he served multiple stints abroad performing architectural services, and the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, where he has held multiple committee and leadership roles, most recently serving as the 2015 NCARB Intern Think Tank Committee Chair.
