Gresham, Smith and Partners announces that Shawn Reese, P.E., has joined the firm as a senior vice president and principal design engineer with the Transportation group in Alpharetta. Reese’s 25 years of domestic and international experience includes a focus on design delivery and project types ranging from complex interchanges and urban freeways to airport runways and railroad route studies. At GS&P, he will serve as a mentor to Transportation staff throughout the firm’s South Division and help continually improve engineering quality for design projects with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) and other state and local entities.
“Shawn’s design background and dedication to top-notch geometric engineering and project deliverables will benefit GS&P’s clients and employees,” said Kent Black, P.E., executive vice president at Gresham, Smith and Partners. “He has an exceptional eye for detail and always searches for ways to improve value and quality for clients. His mentorship and leadership will support the professional growth of our South Division and help us better partner with clients as trusted advisors, taking our services to the next level.”
“I believe it’s an honor and a duty as an engineer to put forward your very best,” commented Reese. “The services and products we provide our clients are essential to community members, and I keep that in mind during all stages of project delivery. I look forward to bringing my experience to GS&P’s team and supporting some of our state’s many ongoing and upcoming infrastructure projects.”
Reese most recently served as a project engineer, project manager and design-build roadway lead for the Parsons Infrastructure division in Georgia. He was the lead roadway engineer for the $1 billion I-75 Northwest Corridor design-build project in Cobb and Cherokee Counties, which placed nearly 30 miles of reversible managed express lanes along I-75 and I-575. Reese also managed and developed the final reversible lane concept for the $200 million I-75 South Metro Express Lanes design-build project in Atlanta, which added 12 miles of reversible managed lanes within the existing median of I-75. Outside of the office, he is an active member of the American Society of Highway Engineers (ASHE). Reese earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Technology from Eastern Kentucky University.
