Toole Design Group (TDG) is delighted to announce that Ian Lockwood, P.E. has joined the firm as a Livable Transportation Engineer. Ian is a recognized national leader in sustainable transportation policy and urban design. As a former partner in the Orlando-based Glatting Jackson (which later became AECOM), Ian led a wide variety of transportation projects aimed at making communities more walkable, bikable and transit-friendly. He also served as the City Transportation Planner for the City of West Palm Beach, where he transformed state arterial roads, local roads, and the City’s approach to parking to overcome its blighted condition and evolve into an economically and socially successful city.
“We are thrilled to have Ian on board,” said Jennifer Toole, President. “He not only brings a tremendous reputation for his work on challenging projects throughout the country, he’s passionate about livable, sustainable transportation options. He’s a perfect fit with our company ideals.” When asked for his reason for joining Toole Design, Ian replied, “There are several but it came down to fit; this is a multidisciplinary firm where everyone is pulling in the same direction to make cities better and protect the countryside.”
Ian’s current work includes walkability projects, restoring one-way streets to two-way, taming arterials, shared spaces, policy reform, and designing main streets, campuses, and downtowns. Ian has guest lectured at several universities and is occasionally interviewed on National Public Radio. In 2011, Ian was awarded a Loeb Fellowship at Harvard University during which he studied the links between transportation, land use, and successful outcomes for communities at all scales.
