When they’re tasked with siting and designing facilities that conform to both explosives-safety criteria and long-term base-wide planning goals, U.S. Department of Defense personnel can face many challenges. I enjoy applying my expertise to help clients envision and execute recapitalization strategies that ensure mission readiness, explosives and occupational safety, and environmental compliance.
Ward Libby is an expert in planning facilities for campus clients, including higher education clients, the U.S. Department of Defense, and other federal agencies. He manages the development and implementation of campus-wide plans such as master plans and energy action plans, as well as project-specific plans such as engineering feasibility studies and conceptual plans. For DoD clients, he also prepares explosives safety submissions, site approval requests, hazard analyses, and engineering concept studies for explosives facilities. Ward has presented on ordnance master planning to industry experts at the DoD Explosives Safety Board seminar.
Ward holds a B.S. in chemical engineering and a B.A. in economics from the University of Maine. He is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) and a licensed professional engineer with extensive DoD explosives safety training in the areas of siting software, electrical applications, facility planning, management, and munitions response. Ward enjoys mountain biking, skiing, and running, but (as the proud and busy father of three young children) he spends most of his free time in the sandbox.
