MINNEAPOLIS — Burns & McDonnell announces that Matt Evans, PE, has joined the firm's Minneapolis-St. Paul office as a senior civil engineer in the Solid Waste Group. Evans' experience bolsters the firm's solid waste offerings. Along with a focus on the development, permitting, design and construction of landfills and landfill-related facilities, Evans has a broad range of knowledge that also includes environmental engineering.
"We've made a pledge to become the firm for providing engineering services and solutions in solid waste management, and hiring Matt is a clear representation of that commitment," said Gene Sieve, office manager of the firm's Minneapolis-St. Paul office. "Burns & McDonnell offers the extensive resources you'd expect from a large firm, and we're making sure that includes some of the best talent in the business, too."
For more than 15 years, Evans has been a project manager and lead engineer for landfill and landfill-related facilities projects around the country, conducting solid waste studies, commissioning reports and analyzing existing recycling processes. In addition to having experience in the design of landfill cells, leachate management systems and landfill gas control systems, Evans has managed the construction of several other solid waste facility projects, including public drop-off areas, compost pads, haul roads and storm water structures. And with his background also featuring environmental engineering experience, Evans adds another element to the Minneapolis-St. Paul office's growing Solid Waste Group.
Evans has served on a variety of projects throughout the upper Midwest, including extensive work in South Dakota for the City of Vermillion, where he assessed the City's solid waste and recycling operations and developed a landfill master plan that sought a more efficient solid waste and recycling process. For the City of Sioux Falls, Evans designed cell and leachate ponds and he was also responsible for planning and managing a multiyear construction project of a leachate and landfill gas extraction system for the City.
Evans has been a Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) board member since 2012 and has been a member of the Minnesota Land of Lakes Chapter since 2008. He earned his Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Washington University in St. Louis.
