R&M CONSULTANTS, INC. (R&M) is pleased to announce the addition of Justin Shaw, PE to our Anchorage office team.
Justin joined R&M’s Engineering Department as a Project Engineer in October 2015. As part of R&M’s Water Resources Group, he is responsible for hydrologic and hydraulic analysis and design of water resources, roadway, airport, site development, and hydropower projects.
“It’s been great working at R&M,” said Justin. “The projects are really diverse so every project is like a brand new project for me. I’ve really enjoyed it.”
Justin has more than five years of experience in water resources engineering. He has worked on numerous hydrologic, hydraulic, and erosion control projects for public and private sector clients, including the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, Department of Natural Resources, and Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority. He is experienced in creating H&H models, analyzing natural and man-made drainage systems, generating flood mitigation measures, and performing sedimentation and erosion studies. His work has focused on one- and two-dimensional modeling of riverine and coastal environments.
Since joining R&M, Justin has worked on a culvert replacement project near Galena to replace the existing, deteriorated drainage structure within limited right-of-way. He is also working on the Little Goldstream project near Nenana to replace an older bridge with a fish passable culvert.
Justin has a M.S. and B.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Mississippi State University. He is a professional civil engineer licensed in Alaska. Justin and his wife, Anna, spent the previous summer in Anchorage for Anna’s internship and loved it. When Anna was offered a job here, they jumped at the opportunity, and moved from Louisiana. They have spent their time enjoying all Alaska has to offer, including skiing and exploring the hiking and biking trails around Anchorage. Justin also enjoys woodworking in his spare time and attempting to train his dog.
