Connor Lamb, Principal Engineer

Mr. Connor Lamb is a civil/environmental engineer with 20 years of experience in upland and in-water civil engineering and construction, much of it in environmental remediation. His combined engineering and construction background spans multiple engineering and design sectors and includes a robust foundation in sediment remediation. He has conducted concept development, estimating, alternatives analysis, feasibility studies, design, permitting, constructability review, contract preparation, plans and specifications, contractor procurement, construction oversight, quality control, project tracking, and construction management.

Connor also worked in many capacities in the field, ranging from heavy equipment/dredge operator to project manager/estimator. His unique career path has allowed him to be an integral contributor at multiple stages to many expansive heavy civil and environmental projects, such as the conversion of a landfill into a golf course applying dredge slurry as a cap component; hydraulic dredging and dewatering sediment in a regional recreation area reservoir; implementing precision dredging as a component of the overall revitalization of 40 acres of waterfront property with extensive soil, groundwater, and sediment impacts; the large-scale urban waterfront cleanup on the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon, just upstream of the Portland Harbor Superfund Site.
