OMAHA, Neb. — Ken Lambert, P.E., has joined HDR as principal project manager. Lambert brings alternative delivery expertise in large, multi-disciplined infrastructure programs and will work directly with HDR’s transportation clients to execute projects from proposal to completion.
Located in our Las Vegas office, Lambert will be responsible for the overall delivery of large programs or projects, coordinating planning, staffing, reviews and more to achieve successful delivery. Lambert will have the opportunity to leverage his expertise on a range of transportation infrastructure projects and delivery methods from traditional methods to design-build and construction manager/general contractor and emerging methods across the spectrum.
With previous experience in the public and private sectors, Lambert has been honing his engineering expertise for almost four decades. In that time, he has been involved in a range of transportation projects and delivery methods, including the design and management of capital improvement projects including highways and interchanges, arterial roadways, intelligent transportation systems, rail improvements, pedestrian bridges, trails and public landscaping projects.
“I truly enjoy the challenges and innovations that stem from working as part of a team of owners, designers and contractors on conventional and alternative delivery projects,” Lambert said. “I always strive to improve the delivery of projects for the benefit of our clients, HDR and the public.”
The bulk of his project experience involves bringing diverse groups of stakeholders together – often with competing interests – to cooperatively develop alternative or conventional project solutions that meet the needs of all parties.
“We are eager to take advantage of Ken’s experience in the public and private sectors to enhance our large-scale transportation programs. His expertise and tremendous reputation in the industry will be an enormous asset to our team,” said Program Management Director Ken Smith.
Lambert has a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. He has served as the board president of both the American Council of Engineering Companies-Nevada and as a board member of the American Public Works Association, Southern Nevada Branch.
