Ken Fellows, a noted Puget Sound area civil engineer and frequent collaborator on environmental engineering projects in the region, will be joining GeoEngineers as a principal engineer. He will work out of the Tacoma office beginning August 25.
With more than 20 years of experience in the environmental field, Ken specializes in leading multi-disciplinary teams to complete projects related to setback levees, habitat restoration, marine construction, sediments, capping and dredging, beaches and contaminated site remediation. He has significant experience managing, investigating, permitting, designing and monitoring habitat mitigation and restoration projects.
This week, Ken is wrapping up his tenure at Parametrix, a Puget Sound area engineering firm that frequently teams with GeoEngineers to pursue a number of large transit and infrastructure opportunities in the region. Ken has been with Parametrix for a total of 14 years and currently serves as Environmental Engineering Division Manager.
Puget Sound Principal Business Unit Leader Mike Hutchinson says this will be a great addition for the company. “Ken will build on our positive momentum by further bridging our Ecological and Engineering services on larger levee setback, habitat restoration, RI/FS prime pursuits. He will also be able to provide assistance on some of our current projects where engineering services have been stretched.”
In addition to his environmental engineering interests, Ken is an avid sailor. In 1995 he took two years to sail his 35-foot sailboat on a 10,000-mile voyage to Mexico.
