“On the path to success always lies big O’s. Some read them as Obstacles, and others read them as Opportunities”
Abel has always been intrigued by how objects were put together, and how they managed to complement one another to form one. During his freshman year in high school, Abel joined a drafting class without realizing how much this would shape his future. After a few years of getting to understand the beauty in structures and design, he decided to pursue this as a career. While architecture was his passion, he decided to take on the challenge of getting a civil engineering degree in order to be able to further his designs.
As a project manager, Abel is involved in all phases from providing initial Schematic Design work through executing the production of Construction Documents. Abel contributes to both the residential and commercial design studios.
Abel received valuable experience while working at a civil/structural engineering firm before finishing his bachelor’s in construction management. This opportunity gave him a head start on the field. He took on both residential and commercial projects, under the direction of the principal engineer which helped him to understand the basic concept of how a building is stable and how to prevent future issues at site level and structural level.
Although this experience felt very rewarding, Abel wanted more. So, he took on the challenge of pursuing where he initially began and joined WDG Architecture and planning. The company’s true diversity in projects attracted him into becoming part of the team.
