Jason Mayfield has been named to a lead architect position working on transportation facilities in the St. Louis office of WSP USA, a leading engineering and professional services consultancy.
In his new position, Mayfield will be responsible for working on numerous projects with WSP’s transportation facilities group, including the Texas Bullet Train, where WSP is providing engineering support for the high-speed rail line between Houston and Dallas. He was previously with the firm from 2000-2004 as a project architect and most recently with Ross & Baruzzini as senior architect.
WSP is a leader in the development of high-speed rail systems and is currently part of the project teams for similar undertakings in California and internationally. The firm is rail delivery partner to the California High-Speed Rail Authority for a statewide high-speed rail system.
“We are pleased to have Jason rejoin WSP, where his focus will be working on transportation projects throughout the United States. He is a certified practitioner of the Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) where his experience will benefit our clients who are struggling with security issues at their transit stations and the communities they serve,” said Tom Brooks-Pilling, vice president of the firm’s transportation facilities group.
“From an architect’s perspective, CPTED is an integral part of the design process that allows us to integrate threat mitigation and crime prevention effectively for a more seamless solution. When coordinated with thoughtful programming, and high performing building envelopes, we create a well-designed, thoughtful solution providing safety and security for both the client and end users,” said Mayfield, who has more than 19 years of experience in the architectural profession.
