Infrastructure Program Continues Growth
Smith Seckman Reid, Inc (SSR), a Nashville based engineering design and facilities consulting firm, has hired Justin Abart as a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Specialist in the firm’s Memphis office.
“We are thrilled to have Justin with us again, he is going to be a key contributor for us as we expand our GIS services,” said Ian Engstrom, Memphis Operations Manager for the Infrastructure Program. “The vast majority of our clients are presently or contemplating the use of GIS for asset management and mapping. Justin brings a wealth of technical knowledge to our team, and he is recognized as a leader in the regional GIS community. This addition strengthens SSR’s position as a leader in providing these services to our clients.”
Abart brings nearly ten years of industry experience, including six previously with SSR where his responsibilities included the development and updating of drainage basin maps for municipalities, development of terrain maps, and the implementation of GIS for site development and drainage studies. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Geography from the University of Tennessee and a Master of Science in Earth Sciences form the University of Memphis. He gained invaluable experience within his academic research which honed his skills in topographic and hydrologic analysis, cultural and demographic trend studies, site and situation studies, and hazard risk and assessment studies.
