ms consultants, inc., an engineering, architectural, and planning firm headquartered in Columbus, Ohio announced that Ron Webb has joined their team. He joins their Indianapolis, Indiana office as Senior Business Project Manager for the transportation division. Mr. Webb brings more than 25 years of experience and knowledge in civil engineering.
Mr. Webb graduated with a civil engineering degree from the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. He has used this degree in a number of roles over the years, gaining experience in construction, transportation, and team management. Mr. Webb specializes in highways and street systems with environmental study components, as well as traffic and drainage control.
Attention to detail and cost cutting solutions are what helped Mr. Webb rework the third segment of the Terre Haute Bypass project. This segment had grown to $20 million more than the original estimate. Creating a plan to change the routing of an existing local roadway saved several thousand feet of embankment, a bridge, and $15 million, significantly decreasing the budget and ultimately saving the critical project from being shelved.
Having experience on both the construction and planning sides of a project has changed Mr. Webb’s approach to management and planning over the years. “Watching how a project is built and the challenges faced by the contractor during construction brings a new perspective to design.” Experiencing project progression from start to finish has allowed Mr. Webb to better craft detailed, timely, and cost effective plans. This knowledge allows him to meet client needs while also eradicating unnecessary contractor challenges.
