Global Technology Lead
Daniel Buonadonna strategizes solutions for managing aging infrastructure.
As the Global Technology Lead for CH2M’s Condition Assessment and Rehabilitation Services (CARS) team and the Deputy Regional Service Leader of CH2M’s Conveyance Community of Practice in the Northwest United States, Dan is dedicated to helping communities face the challenges associated with aging infrastructure and asset management.
Dan’s expertise in consulting, engineering design, operations and maintenance, and project management has afforded him several opportunities since joining CH2M in 2008. He has demonstrated his expertise in managing risks, providing high-quality design, and minimizing construction costs during key CARS projects for clients from Anchorage, Alaska to Honolulu, Hawaii.
Understanding the pressures of increasing financial constraints and competition for available resources that water utilities work under, Dan believes in developing proactive strategies for utility management and leveraging the latest innovations in cost-saving technologies. He does this by reaching across our organization to collaborate with experts and develop holistic solutions that respect the opinions of all project stakeholders.
Our customizable, scalable approach allows us to serve a wide range of clients with different needs. When I see a real need, and a real concern, I’m driven to help create solutions for our clients.
Because CH2M has a unique and collaborative culture rooted in our know-how and passion for what we do, Dan’s innovative approach to problem solving is the perfect balance for ensuring our clients receive the benefit of a collaborative partnership delivered with integrity, openness and clear communication. He adheres to a strong ethic of service and finds this to be a common thread among engineers at CH2M.
“Being personally motivated is one thing. Being part of a collectively motivated and skilled team is an entirely separate privilege. Our group at CH2M has a shared history of working together that allows us to capitalize and share that motivation with our client team counterparts.”
Dan received his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the University of Notre Dame and holds a Master of Science in Environmental Engineering degree from the University of California, Berkeley. He is a member of the North American Society for Trenchless Technologies, Water Environment Federation (WEF), and Engineers Without Borders.
