As Senior Vice President and Corporate Director of Environmental Services, Mr. Peter T. Sutherland is responsible for engineering and construction programs developed with a focus in energy, climate change, water, transportation, and the telecommunications market sectors, as well as a broad spectrum of building infrastructure.
Mr. Sutherland is a multi-state licensed Environmental Engineer and Professional Geologist holding a Master of Science in Civil Engineering, with over 30 years of experience in consulting, engineering, construction management, and program development. These programs integrate a wide set of management skill sets including site planning, permitting, complex analysis, cost-benefit analysis, pro-forma, risk management, program data management, and public/private stakeholder involvement. Services he directs include remediation, natural resources and cultural resource management (CRM). This requires a breadth of technical expertise incorporating experience with environmental and geotechnical subsurface investigations, energy ROWs, site remediation, solid waste management, hydrology for water supply, wetland and ecological studies and cultural resource management. These are applied in private, public and federal sector work in connection with a wide range of building, road, dam, rail, bridge, tunnel and utility infrastructure projects.
More recently, Mr. Sutherland’s focus is largely placed with major housing and infrastructure recovery and resiliency programs in response to hurricane and super-storm impacts. This requires a versatile familiarity of federal relief funding and agency contract requirements under the CDBG Urgent Need objective, and a strong working knowledge of HUD environmental review procedures including NEPA compliance and their supporting studies.
