Employee Highlight

Brian Simmons, PE

Principal Engineer

Sparked by his first LEGO set, Brian was four years old when he knew he wanted to be an engineer. He joined Bolton & Menk in 2005 as a municipal engineer responsible for project management, planning, and design, with expertise in trenchless technology, cured-in-place pipe, asset management, and UAV (drones). He currently oversees Bolton & Menk’s UAV and Remote Sensing team. Brian is passionate about leveraging and using new technology. "Sometimes new technology is the pivot point to being able to accomplish a new kind of construction; and sometimes it's something simple that makes us just a little more efficient in our daily lives. Either way, I'm interested in it," says Brian. "I appreciate that Bolton & Menk is a leader in such things and I intend to do my part to keep us at the cutting edge."
