Bruce A. Webber has joined Stantec—a global engineering, architecture, and consulting firm—as a Senior Project Manager in its growing transportation team in Fresno, California. Webber will provide leadership and focus on growing Stantec’s transportation practice in the Central Valley.

Webber has more than 34 years of experience working across a wide variety of projects in both the public and private sectors as well as with Valley counties and Caltrans. He has worked on a number of major transportation projects, often acting as a liaison between contractors, construction management consultants, and various cities to discuss and resolve project challenges and construction issues.

As part of the Project Construction Management team for the California High Speed Rail (HSR) CP2-3 project, Webber spearheaded Civil reviews, which included thirty new grade separations and modifications to existing irrigation facilities as part of the HSR project. He also reviewed structural packages for conformance with civil packages and acted as lead reviewer on all designs relating to modifications of roadways in Fresno, Kings, and Tulare Counties. This included traffic handling plans, encroachment permits and submittals to the California Public Utilities Commission.

“We’re excited to have Bruce anchor our transportation team in Fresno,” said Jose de Jesus Martinez, Stantec senior principal. “His wealth of experience in local transportation issues, his project management skills, and his philosophy of client care align with our strategic plan to grow our transportation practice in the Central Valley and beyond. Having worked with him on HSR for nearly four years, I know he’ll be a great addition to our team. We look forward to opportunities to closely collaborate with clients in Central and Northern California.”

Webber graduated from California State University, Fresno with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and is a Caltrans certified Construction General Permit Qualified SWPPP Practitioner and Qualified SWPPP Developer. He is also registered as a Professional Civil Engineer.
