Atkins, one of the world’s leading design, engineering, and project management consultancies, welcomes Robert “Jud” Warren, PE, project director in the San Diego office. Warren will focus on sustaining and growing the firm’s water infrastructure business in Southern California, especially in the San Diego market.
“For the last 10 years I have played a leading role in business development with major water utility clients in California,” said Warren. “I intend to draw from my past experience of strategizing and targeting major clients and pursuits to assist our Atkins team in maintaining the presence we already have in the area while also showcasing our expertise to new prospects.”
Warren has extensive experience in water, wastewater, and stormwater in the western U.S., including Arizona, California, Colorado, Louisiana, and Texas. His more than 36 years of experience includes a variety of water and wastewater assignments. His water treatment work has included surface water conventional, membrane, reverse osmosis, desalination, and groundwater for new facilities and expansion of existing plants. Warren’s water conveyance projects have encompassed large diameter pipeline design, condition assessment, relining, and booster pump stations.
For wastewater, Warren’s treatment projects have involved headworks, liquid stream, activated sludge, solids processing and handling, odor control, and effluent reclamation and reuse. And his conveyance work has included large diameter sewer design, condition assessment, rehabilitation design, and construction oversight.
Most recently, Warren was a client service manager (CSM) at Brown and Caldwell, assisting clients in Southern California. He worked collaboratively with fellow CSMs in the firm and other business development leaders on overall strategy for targeted pursuits, prepositioning, and alliances and teaming arrangements with other firms. He also led delivery of several projects through varying phases—assessment, design, and construction.
