Waltz, a Principal and Operations Director in SBA’s Connecticut office, brings a strong technical background to all of his projects with special expertise in accessibility, sustainability and building technology. With diverse experience in the Academic, Healthcare, Residential and Senior Living sectors across the U.S. and abroad, he brings a wide range of knowledge and experience to each project, resulting in unique design solutions that are not restrained by pre-conceived ideas. Waltz believes that environmental consciousness, aesthetic beauty, and functionality should be combined in equal parts to create buildings that are an experiential treat for the users as well as a source of pride for the Owner and the surrounding community.
Teresa Wilson, a graduate of University of Michigan (B.Arch/M.Arch), has worked at SBA Boston for the majority of her 24 years of professional practice. Wilson was recently named Managing Director of the Boston Office.

Her experience with SBA and Sterling, along with her expertise in integrating innovations in healthcare design for our clients, mentoring, and implementation of strategic improvements internally has helped Wilson excel in her new role. Wilson spends most of her time working directly with clients focusing on planning concepts, master planning, programming, LEAN design and fostering collaborative and responsive team relationships.
