Rob W. Voss


“The buildings we design are very serious structures, but that doesn't mean we can't revel in the joy of creating them.”

Rob Voss is driven by the belief that rationalism can be reflected in something that is also exuberant. This belief has propelled Rob in the successful execution and delivery of numerous complex institutional and commercial buildings, including George Washington University’s 750,000 SF Science and Engineering Hall. Since 2003, he has advanced Ballinger’s mission to provide clients with forward-looking solutions that simplify complexity. A determined, mission-aware professional who takes pride in focused, “head-down” work, Rob also considers his ability to find enjoyment in the process of completing that work tantamount to his success.
