Small Business Spotlight: Ward Edwards Engineering

Allan Ward – Ward Edwards Engineering

Q: Tell us about your business. What is your business philosophy?

Allen: My business philosophy is a reflection of the truth I have learned through experience: God is the provider, and work is for worship. We can worship God in our work by finding and employing our unique gifts and talents. At Ward Edwards, we just try to create an environment where people can do that in service to others through civil and environmental engineering.

Q: Why are you passionate about your commitment to supporting the United Way of the Lowcountry?

Allen: Every one of us needs a hand up every now and then. United Way provides a way for me to leverage my efforts to help others right here in my own community by channeling resources where they are needed most.

Q: What is something interesting or surprising that most people don’t know about you?

Allen: In my dreams I am a farmer, but I don’t think I have the temperament for it.
Q: What would your older self tell your younger self?
Allen: Relax!
Q: Favorite quote?

Allen: “The ecological teaching of the Bible is simply inescapable: God made the world because He wanted it made. He thinks the world is good, and He loves it. It is His world; He has never relinquished title to it. And He has never revoked the conditions, bearing on His gift to us of the use of it, that oblige us to take excellent care of it.” Wendell Berry-What Are People For?
