Pete’s passion for people and the environment inspires him to protect communities in the UK from the potentially damaging effects of flooding from waterways.
He joined CH2M as a graduate in 2012, and currently works as a flood risk management engineer on the Rivers Team in London. Solving problems is at the heart of what Pete does, and in his role, he’s constantly working to improve the standards of protection from flooding for people, property and the environment.
Pete says that the best part of his role is having the opportunity to work both in the field, visiting sites with flood issues, and closely and collaboratively with clients, understanding their greatest challenges and helping to design a solution to fit their needs. He especially loves seeing his team’s work come to fruition. “I really take pride in being at the start of the process for many communities in providing them with potential flood defense solutions . . . and knowing I have made a real difference to people,” he says.
He mentions, “Having worked for other engineering companies, I can say that it feels different at CH2M. People, no matter where they sit in the organization, know who you are and care about you. They’re always thinking about how to best help you grow personally and professionally. I feel secure in my future here, and the working culture feels right: doing the right thing in the right way.”
We’re proud to have Pete at CH2M, using his civil engineering experience to protect the environment while keeping people – and their property – safe.
