Timothy Ward, PE
Timothy Ward said he enjoys the balance that comes with
being an aviation consultant.
He could never see himself doing any one thing all the time for
his career, so being able to get out and visit clients regularly,
spending time on construction sites and rolling up his sleeves
to deliver design solutions is the right fit for him.
" In my 15-year career as an aviation engineer, I have had the
opportunity to support a wide variety of projects and clients, "
he said. " From runways, taxiways and terminal aprons, to
baggage handling systems, deicing facilities, hydrant fueling
systems, hangar rehabilitations and roof replacements;
working with clients at commercial service airports from large
hub to small relievers, general aviation airports, as well as the
Hometown: Pittsburgh, PA
Army, Navy, Air Force and National Guard.
Alma Mater: University of Pittsburgh
" So on any given day, I am not 100 percent certain of
Fun fact about yourself: I love to
who in the aviation world will be talking to or what
cook. I did a " Chopped " challenge for
exactly I will be talking to them about and that's what
my kids as entertainment during the
I love about it. "
Ward has become a technical leader who is continually
Someone I look up to in the
advancing his expertise and that of younger
industry: Joe Grubbs and Bill Peduzzi.
Both great leaders, mentors and people.
He is now a go-to resource within HDR and for
My favorite thing about
its clients when planning and developing airfield
aviation is: Everything. The people,
pavement projects. Not everyone would say a massive
the airports, the projects and of course

paving project is something they love. But he does - and he's
got 13 runway projects to prove it.
Ward gained valuable experience and perspective through his
involvement in a wide variety of projects and positions. He has
been responsible for everything from airfield paving, hydrant
fueling and baggage handling to restroom restoration and
roof replacement projects.
This past year, Ward was named project manager for the Blue
Grass Airport Runway Design project in Lexington, Ky. He
quickly earned their trust by bringing solutions to some of the
project's most critical elements.
Ward attracts high-caliber industry experts as well as up-andcoming professionals to join HDR based on his track record
and involvement in the aviation industry. He has created
a positive work environment not only with the Pittsburgh
aviation staff but across the aviation group nationwide.
When mentoring younger staff, Ward positions them to
further cultivate their skill sets and networks of industry
professionals. As the aviation industry finds new ways to
move into an uncertain future safely, vision and trust among
all stakeholders and partners are key.
