He’s had the opportunity to work with some of the latest material technology and off shore techniques and we are excited about bringing this expertise to our bridge design and construction engineering projects. Patrick has demonstrated the ability to work creatively and collaboratively on innovative renewable energy projects and I know he will bring the same approach to FINLEY. We’re delighted to have Patrick on our team.” said Craig Finley, Jr., P.E. President, FINLEY.
