Haley Ward 2020 June Employee Updates

Bangor – Haley Ward, a Maine-headquartered firm of engineers, environmental scientists, and land surveyors, is pleased to announce employee updates in its Maine, Massachusetts and Florida offices.

Matthew Carter, AIA joins Haley Ward as a Project Manager/Senior Architect with over 28 years of experience as a Maine-based architect and project manager on residential, commercial, library, educational, municipal, institutional, and civic work, with an emphasis on historic preservation, code compliance, master planning, existing facilities renovation, and public safety projects. A natural addition to Haley Ward’s growing building services unit, Carter believes in the importance of a client-centered, team-driven design process that considers all aspects of design, understands the needs of the many stakeholders involved in a project, and is concerned with the effective use of the client’s resources to produce affordable designs. His range of experience extends beyond the Bangor region including locales such as Alabama, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio and Delaware. Born and raised in Bangor, Carter attended Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he received his Bachelor of Architecture degree. He worked for and was a partner at several architectural firms before founding his own firm in 2014. Carter also serves as the current chair of the Bangor Historic Preservation Commission.

Don Becker, PE rejoined Haley Ward this spring as Project Engineer after five years working as a Project Manager in the construction industry and at another consulting firm.

Becker graduated from the University of Wyoming and resides in the Greater Bangor region.

After three summers of working as a surveying intern in Haley Ward’s Machias office, Drew Greenlaw joins Haley Ward as a full-time Survey Technician. He is a 2020 University of Maine Survey Engineering graduate and plans to seek his Master’s degree in Business Administration. Greenlaw will be working in the field and at times, in the office learning the ropes to ultimately obtain licensure.

Machias and Fort Myers, Florida

Mohamed Badr has joined our surveying division as a Senior Technician. He has experience with both field and survey office tasks, including the use of standard equipment (level, total station, and GPS) and software (Microsoft Office, AutoCAD, and Civil3D).

With assistance and guidance from other professionals within Haley Ward, Badr plans to pursue licensure, potentially in both Maine and Florida.
