Professional Development

The strength of our team grows as we deepen the capabilities of the individuals that comprise it. To that end, we are committed to understanding and growing the skills of all our people. We actively invest in continuing education for staff members at all levels.

All Wood Harbinger employees are given the latitude and empowerment to express ideas and explore them creativity. Every individual is entrusted to self-manage within a set of firm-wide processes and is provided with support and leadership. By leveraging our combined strengths and passions, we can create highest value project outcomes that exceed our clients’ expectations.

Our staff attend local, regional, and national conferences within their areas of specialization. We promote ongoing learning and certifications in the areas of sustainability, engineering, technology, and commissioning.

We also participate as board members and committee members in the professional organizations that set the policies and standards for professional practice across a range of technical disciplines. Examples include:

  • American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC)
  • Building Commissioning Association (BCA)
  • Facility Guidelines Institute (FGI)
  • Underwriter’s Laboratories (UL)
  • Washington State Society for Healthcare Engineering (WSSHE)
  • West Wireless Health Institute (WWHI)

Wood Harbinger also actively participates in the ACE Mentor Program of Washington. ACE is a volunteer enrichment program for high school students interested in a career in the built environment design and construction field.
