Williams previously served as the Director of Capital Projects at Texas Medical Center, and before that was the Senior Director, Capital Projects, at the University of Houston. He also spent more than a decade as a construction project manager in Houston and received his Bachelor’s degree in construction science from Texas A&M. His background as both a client and a construction manager positions him with a fresh approach to the design process, and his experience in Houston will help Shepley Bulfinch expand its footprint in this dynamic architecture market.
Trent Williams joins Shepley Bulfinch as a Principal in its Houston studio.
“I believe that design should be innovative, purposeful, and sustainable, and it all starts with effective collaboration,” said Thurman. “Working alongside Trent, I am looking forward to furthering Shepley Bulfinch’s impact in Houston.”

“Houston is a dynamic market and one that is always looking for innovative and new ideas,” said Williams. “This is a city where relationships and trust between parties are key. Through my experience, I know what it’s like to be on all sides of the table, and we at the Houston studio will work hard every day to strengthen those relationships and that trust between Shepley Bulfinch and its clients.”
