OUBO welcomes Peter Mackey, PE in the role of Senior Mechanical/Plumbing
Engineer. Peter joins us after many years working with 2RW. In that capacity, he has been on the
design team for many UVA projects, and knows many of our mechanical systems well. Peter also earned
his engineering degree from UVA and will bring a unique combination of student and professional to
his new role.
We say our fond farewell to Ron Herfurth, PE, who retires at the end of
January. We wish him well and thank him for a remarkable 32 year career spent ensuring that building
systems in UVA buildings are designed and built to conform to building code and provide optimal
comfort and energy efficiency for students and staff.
Nathan Lawson, PE successfully earned his PE license. We congratulate him
on his success!
