Salina–based engineering firm Barton & Loguidice, D.P.C. (B&L) announced it is preparing to open a new office in Annapolis, Maryland and has hired a new senior managing engineer for the office.
The lease on the firm’s office in Lanham, Maryland expired, so B&L moved the office to Annapolis, Jill Richmond, marketing communications manager at Barton & Loguidice, said in an email response to a BJNN inquiry.
Crews are currently renovating the 2,600-square-foot office, and B&L staff will move in on June 1, Richmond added.
With the Annapolis location, B&L operates two offices in Maryland, per a company news release. B&L on March 28 announced it had acquired Eldersburg, Maryland–based Advanced Land and Water, Inc. (ALWI), which is located near Baltimore.
Barton & Loguidice is an engineering, planning, environmental and landscape architecture firm that employs more than 270 people throughout the Northeast in offices in New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.
The newly hired senior managing engineer, David Kerr, joined the firm in February, per Richmond’s email response. He is one of three employees in the Annapolis office and Barton & Loguidice plans to do additional hiring in that office, Richmond said.
Kerr earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in civil engineering from Clarkson University.
Kerr joins the firm’s water/wastewater practice area, B&L said. He has 21 years of experience in hydraulic modeling, master planning, asset management, design, construction management, mentoring and business-development skills based on his work for firms in Maryland and New York.
He previously worked as an infrastructure-modeling manager, a role in which he managed and supported water and sewer hydraulic-modeling projects in the U.S. and Canada, including training for staff and clients.
Additionally, he has managed small and large projects in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions related to water distribution and sewer-collection systems, B&L said.
