Lisa Casler (pictured), a professional engineer, also has been promoted to director of roadway services after several years of serving as project manager and lead roadway design engineer.

Formerly RQAW’s environmental-division manager, he is a certified professional wetland scientist, with expertise in document preparation for the National Environmental Policy Act, geographic information systems mapping, wetland delineations, and regulatory permitting. Dabkowski has developed more than 200 statewide NEPA documents for INDOT transportation projects and serves as an on-call environmental consultant for INDOT. He also specializes in ecological evaluations and mitigation.

The firm has added Vohn Wilson as a graduate architect. He previously interned with both Design Collaborative Inc. and American Structurepoint, where he gained experience in design aspects, creating floor plans and 3D prints. Wilson completed his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architecture at Ball State University. He also earned a certificate in digital fabrication from the university.
