Joel Butler

Vice President of Pre-Construction

Inspired by the words of Sun–Tzu...the endeavors of those who plan thoroughly do not have unorthodox victories, are not known for genius, and are not acknowledged for valor because their victories contain no miscalculations.


Joel Butler is responsible for overseeing all commercial office and multifamily projects during the pre-construction phase. Throughout his tenure with W. L. Butler, he has been instrumental within both the field and office, working on numerous project teams simultaneously.
