Invested in Minnesota’s Communities: TKDA Grows Municipal Engineering and Planning Services
Cities, townships, and counties face complex infrastructure and planning issues today. In order to implement needed capital projects, these government agencies require access to engineering, architecture, and planning services that are efficient, effective and responsive. To best support communities in addressing these challenges, TKDA is aligning technical groups to better serve municipalities, and investing in the technical capabilities required to deliver high-value solutions.
TKDA is known for delivering integrated solutions to Minnesota communities for more than a century. Aligning their municipal roadway engineering and water/wastewater teams with complementary internal technical teams allows the firm to better address today’s infrastructure challenges.
“Understanding that the best infrastructure and facility outcomes for our cities, townships, and counties depend on the highest technical capabilities, TKDA is positioning our technical groups in support of professional and capability growth,” states Tom Stoneburner, TKDA’s CEO.
The company’s water and wastewater engineers are now aligned with their structural, electrical and mechanical teams. Municipal roadway and utility engineers are now aligned with other surface transportation experts such as traffic engineers and transportation planners, highway and bridge engineers, and water resource experts. “It better positions TKDA to efficiently serve municipal clients based on the high value we bring to transportation and water/wastewater solutions. The result you’ll see is an expanded emphasis by our company on serving municipalities with complex infrastructure needs,” adds Stoneburner.
TKDA has also dedicated two current employees with deep prior expertise in county and municipal infrastructure to serve as client advisors. Doug Fischer, Program Director-Government Markets, brings nearly 30 years of prior experience in county engineering in the Twin Cities. Jeannine Clancy, Program Director-Strategic and Community Partnerships, adds the perspective from her prior career as a public works and regional infrastructure leader in the Twin Cities. Together with TKDA’s transportation and water/wastewater engineering experts, TKDA’s client advisory capabilities will support cities, townships, and counties with capital planning, project funding, and project delivery.
