Over his 37 years of experience, Joe has worked on nearly every kind of water/wastewater project, from treatment to conveyance and collection to studies and optimization. His career has become focused on the program management of large scale capital improvement plans, where he has overseen the construction of 13 different projects under one program and a collection system rehabilitation program with an estimated construction cost of over $500 million. To make programs of that size and scale function smoothly, an expert is required that can become an extension of client staff to relay their concerns and needs to the project team.

He can see how all the facets of a system function together, identifying a solution that not only solves the problem but improves operations of the entire system. In addition, Joe adapts his communication style to match that of the client, and he structures his team to deliver the best value solutions for each project.
