“Infrastructure in the western U.S. is undergoing a period of intensive growth, driven by rising population and an increased awareness of the benefits of transit solutions,” said Jim Thomson, PE, HNTB Northwest Division President. “Adding Greg to the HNTB team is the right decision at the right time for our clients and the public they serve.”

He also served as Project Manager on the $90-million Deport District bus maintenance facility and ongoing upgrades to the Mount Ogden bus facility.

“Greg is a perfect fit for HNTB’s clients,” said Todd Jensen, SE, Office Leader at HNTB’s Salt Lake City office. “His deep transportation experience makes him a tremendous resource as we continue to deliver quality work on the area’s most critical infrastructure projects.”
