Wentworth Partners & Associates, Inc. is an architectural and engineering consulting/design corporation focused on complete design solutions. WPA was founded in January 2009 by two Wentworth Institute of Technology alumni whose formation of WPA was based on the premise that design services could be done efficiently, economically, and professionally without the external costs to the client for unnecessary overhead. WPA's greatest strength is the ability to manage a project by putting together the best possible team to match the individual challenges of that project. By incorporating numerous business partners from sole-proprietary engineering firms to semi-retired practicing engineers WPA provides its clients with the most efficient design service in the market.
Mr. Dennison lived and worked most of his life in the Greater Boston area before retiring to Lagrange, Maine in 2004. He was a 1948 graduate of the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology of Boston and was our second generation of engineering leadership at WPA. He had been the chief engineer for his father-in-law's Boston based engineering firm and upon his father-in-law's retirement in 1954, he took ownership of the firm, founding it as as Denco Engineering, Inc. He carried it forth for forty-nine years before passing it on to Wentworth Partners and Associates. Mr. Dennison was an award-winning engineer, responsible for everything from highway bridges to complex high-rise buildings to historical retrofit projects. He was a licensed Structural Engineer in all six New England states and New York. He was a mentor to Mr. Govoni and Mr. Smith and his greatest strengths were his vast knowledge of and experience in engineering design and building construction.
