StraightPath Consulting was created in 2012 in response to the continuing need for Work Zone and general Safety training in the heavy highway community.

As Billy started to retire for the second time, folks kept asking for his unique style of training and Construction Management. This unique style has been developed from years of seeing accidents in our work zones that could have been avoided with just a little attention to detail and someone to champion the effort.

Billy’s attention to detail and anticipation of events and processes are the basis for his style of Construction Management. Always looking ahead; using the past as a guide to avoid delay. Always insisting on constant communication between owner and contactor as the primary road to success. Everyone understanding expectations in the beginning so work can start and finish both economically for the owner, profitable for the contractor and on time for the public.

Billy has held all major certifications for VDOT and is an ATSSA and VDOT certified instructor for all Work Zone Safety Courses.

Billy also holds teaching certifications for OSHA 10 & 30.
