People | BE Welcomes Weiyi Zhao

Headshot Crop


Temperatures outside may be cooling down, but things are heating up at Bailey Edward! We are in full swing with projects, presentations, and welcoming our newest staff member Weiyi Zhao to the Champaign Office!

Weiyi earned her Master of Architecture and Master of Construction Management from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). Growing up in a small town in China, Weiyi mentioned that all of the surrounding buildings were very similar to each other with little variation. Weiyi decided to pursue architecture after attending the Expo 2010 in Shanghai where she experienced architecture design as an imaginative art form and a way to inspire others.

Weiyi will be assisting on projects using her impressive skills in Revit and CAD. She is especially excited that she is now a part of the team that restored her favorite building on UIUC’s campus, Lincoln Hall!

Weiyi is a welcome addition to the Champaign office and the BE team! We’re so excited to have her on board. If you are interested in joining Bailey Edward, send your resume to
