Systems Technology Programmer Thor Lipscomb works alongside our SmartSpaces team to facilitate a seamless experience for clients. In the same way, African American inventor and nurse Marie Van Brittan Brown valued safety and ease in her inventions — ultimately laying the foundation for some of the Systems Technologies programs that Thor works with today.

Senior Fire Alarm Designer II Ricardo Douglas values the power of communication in his role, especially when it comes to fire alarms within the buildings we build from coast-to-coast. Inspired by African American Mechanical and Electrical Engineer Granville Woods, Ricardo applauds Granville’s “can-do anything” attitude and hopes to follow in his footsteps.
With tenacity and perseverance, we can accomplish anything we set our minds to. I look forward to helping other people of color find that drive to be successful.
