Bart received his B.S. in Engineering with a concentration in Civil Engineering and a minor in Surveying from The University of Tennessee at Martin in 2018. He started with LDA in 2017 as a student intern. During this time, he gained additional experience in surveying and field construction services while working as a Resident Project Representative throughout the summer with the city of Morristown. Since becoming an engineer intern, he has assisted in design of utilities projects and contract document and specification review for various KUB and Metro Water Service projects.
Working as a subconsultant for Black & Veatch, Bart was part of the survey team for the project. As a rod man, Bart assisted with the design the rehabilitation for 2,000 linear feet of 8-inch to 30-inch sewer line including an inverted siphon as part of the Sewer Assessment and Rehabilitation Program SARP10.
Bart approved the contractor submittals for materials during the pre-construction services. The project required four creek crossings and consisted of mainly dig-and-lay with jack and bore at street crossings. Design tasks for the project included development of specifications, and preparing the construction budget.
Bart assisted with the design tasks including: plant water systems evaluation, Revit modeling, channel mixing design, develop standards for CAD details and specifications, site access and circulation, piezometer data logging and analysis, permitting, site civil and Civil 3D design, sustainability initiatives development, and design of approximately 1,000 linear feet of a new 84-inch south secondary effluent conveyance line. This project involves upgrades to the entire CSO treatment facility. After construction of these improvements, the CWWTP will have a maximum flow capacity of approximately 350 MGD.
Bart worked daily with Morristown Utility and City of Morristown project managers to handle and coordinate complaints, project constraints, client relations, and detailed scheduling of contractors for clients. Trenchless technologies included pipe bursting, dig-n-lay, and manhole rehabilitation. Pipe size ranged from 8-inch to 15-inch HDPE. Other responsibilities included contract document and specification review, observing and documenting daily construction progress, updating record drawings, erosion control setup, field change directives, reviewing contractor pay requests, and making recommendations for payment. In addition, Bart reviewed post CCTV videos to identify pipe disruptions.
Bart preformed quality control and quality assurance for the project before preparing the project specifications and construction budget. The project consists of jack and boring, pipe bursting, dig and lay, and manhole rehabilitation and replacement, specifications, and preparing the construction budget.
Working as a sub to CDM Smith, Bart supported Nashville’s Solid Waste Master Plan by conducting a two-season, multi-facility waste characterization study for the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County. This study evaluated the residential and commercial waste streams of Davidson County. Sort staff characterized materials at transfer stations and a material recovery facility (MRF) to determine the percent, by weight, of recoverable and non-recoverable materials. The waste characterization staff sorted materials into 50 categories down to the quarter inch under the unique work conditions of active transfer stations. Health and Safety protocol was followed and a safe and successful summer event was completed to exceed client expectations.
Bart approved the contractor submittals for materials during the pre-construction services. The project required four creek crossings and consisted of mainly dig-and-lay with jack and bore at street crossings. Design tasks for the project included development of specifications, and preparing the construction budget. The project included approximately 6,000 linear feet of new 12-inch and 24-inch gravity interceptor.
