Global architecture and design firm Perkins&Will has welcomed Julie Wienberg, who will oversee its airport planning and design services.

Wienberg’s appointment is intended to strengthen Perkins&Will’s position in the market, coinciding with a surge in post-pandemic air travel and the recent infusion of nearly $1bn in federal funding aimed at enhancing the traveller experience at 99 US airports this year alone.

Based in Perkins&Will’s Denver studio, Wienberg brings 26 years of experience in the planning, design, and management of complex aviation and transportation projects across the country, including the development, integration, and delivery of new terminals, concourses, and expansions. She has served as lead architect and technical advisor, with responsibilities ranging from project development and procurement to project management and stakeholder dialogue facilitation. Wienberg has been a member of the Board of Directors for the Airports Consultants Council (ACC) since December 2022.

Among Wienberg’s past clients are Austin-Bergstrom, Chicago O’Hare, Denver, Des Moines, Tucson and Phoenix Sky Harbor international airports.

“Julie’s client-centric focus and commitment to delivering the results our aviation clients expect make her a valuable and trusted advisor,” said James McGrath, chair of Perkins&Will’s global transportation practice. “We are thrilled to have her, grateful for her expertise, and confident in her ability to successfully lead us through this exciting period of growth and opportunity.”
