Dewberry, a privately held professional services firm, opened a new office in Roanoke, Virginia to serve clients in the region. The firm also hired Frank Moeller, P.E., LEED AP, to lead the office’s mechanical and electrical engineering projects.

Dewberry has Virginia offices in Danville, Virginia Beach, Gainesville, Leesburg, Richmond and Fairfax. The Roanoke office’s primary function is to support projects and clients in southern and central Virginia.

Moeller joins the firm as a mechanical department discipline manager, providing mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) technical and project leadership for clients in the Roanoke area, including those in the education, healthcare and private sectors. He joins the firm having spent nearly 30 years practicing mechanical engineering for building systems across various markets.

“Frank’s background in building system design and his familiarity with the Roanoke region is combination of assets we believe will help grow our talent pool in the region, allowing us to better fulfill our clients’ needs, while also meeting their challenges with long-lasting solutions,” Dewberry Senior Vice President Shepard Hockaday, P.E, LEED AP, said.
