Brian A. DiPietro

Associate Principal

Beginning with an internship in 2002, Brian’s entire professional career has been spent with WTW. He considers it his second home. Brian knew he wanted to be an architect since he was a kid. One of his grandfathers was an artist, the other a construction worker, both of whom influenced his interests at a young age. When he couldn’t decide between the two careers, he realized he could do both as an architect.

Brian got an early start – beginning his own carpentry business at age 14. He built decks and took on smallscale remodeling projects for his neighbors. The referrals kept coming and the business endured beyond his college years.

It’s a motivation to keep getting better at what he does that continues to drive Brian. And while he counts the 23rd & Railroad project among his favorites and specializes in multifamily housing, including both student housing and privatized apartments, the truth is, Brian’s favorite project is “always the next one.”
