We look forward to the innovative solutions he’ll bring to our clients.”
“The population of Charlotte, and of many other cities in North and South Carolina, is growing rapidly,” said Lambert. “Clients turn to us for highly effective, cost-efficient ways to meet this new demand, and it’s our responsibility to also design projects that minimize affects to the environment. It’s an exciting time to work in the transportation industry, and I’m eager to get to work with my teammates to deliver high-quality roadway solutions for GS&P’s clients.”
