Stephen C. Evans joins ZweigWhite as Director, Operations Consulting
Press Release: June 17, 2011
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (June 17, 2011) – ZweigWhite is proud to announce the addition of Stephen C. Evans, AIA, NCARB, as the firm’s new director, Operations Consulting. Evans is the current architect for ZweigWhite’s eLearning series on project management, and will be expanding his role to provide both operations and project management consulting services for ZweigWhite’s A/E/P and environmental consulting firm clients.
Evans, a licensed architect, brings 30-plus years of experience as a senior project manager for Populous (formerly known as the HOK Sports Facilities Group) and director of operations for HOK’s North Central Region covering St. Louis and Chicago. He began his tenure with the HOK Sports Facilities Group as the project manager for Oriole Park at Camden Yards in 1988. This was followed by four years of managing the design and consultant team from master planning through construction and opening day in Baltimore in 1992. Evans then took on the role of senior project manager for three more major sports projects over an eight-year period: Jacobs Field in Cleveland for the Cleveland Indians, Carolinas Stadium in Charlotte for the Carolina Panthers, and lastly, back to Baltimore to complete the masterplan at Camden Yards with the addition of the Baltimore NFL Stadium for the Baltimore Ravens.
Evans lives in the Lawrence, Kan., area. With a background in a wide variety of project types and sizes, Evans’ services range from the evaluation of firm-wide practices in project management, to detailed, close-up analysis of project budgeting, work plan set-up and monitoring. His familiarity with A/E/P specific software and technology allows him to assist firms in managing and using these systems to their fullest potential.
Evans’ most recent position as director of operations for both HOK’s North Central Region in St. Louis for eight years and Treanor Architects in Lawrence, Kansas, for the past two years, has allowed him to use a variety of project experiences, along with knowledge of legal and risk management, to lead and guide the firm’s operations and financial management. Evans is also in the process of authoring a book on firm business operations, and will be a presenter at ZweigWhite’s Project Management Seminars in the fall of 2011.
Evans is a member of the American Institute of Architects and licensed by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards and the State of Kansas. He also serves on the advisory board at the School of Architecture, Design and Planning at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kan.
“This opportunity with a firm like ZweigWhite gives me the ability to share best practices I’ve learned and used in some great organizations over the years,” Evans says. “I am quite grateful for the experiences I’ve had with Populous, HOK, and Treanor for providing places to practice architecture, firm operations and project management in creative and learning environments.”
