Brendan O’Sullivan, PE

Principal Engineer

Brendan serves in a variety of design and construction administration roles on major public improvement projects, including pipelines, sanitary and storm sewers, reservoirs, pump stations, and transportation enhancements. He has become a “go to” expert in trenchless installation and rehabilitation methods, and is an excellent resource for design and constructability. Drawn to the field of civil engineering to build better infrastructure, Brendan takes great pride in finding cost-effective solutions to address utility deficiencies and improve the services our communities depend on.


Brendan lived in seven states and three countries while growing up in a military family, and he moved to Oregon in 2000 to attend the University of Portland. When not working, he’s busy putting his design, cost estimating, and project management skills to good use on home remodeling projects.
