This fall, engineer Bob Connolly, PE, joined SCJ Alliance as a Senior Project Manager. Bob previously worked at Skillings Connolly, where he helped lead the firm for over 30 years.
“We are delighted to have Bob join our team. He has known many of our staff for decades and there is great mutual respect,” says Jean Carr, SCJ’s President/CEO. Connolly’s role includes project management, client management, business development, and community involvement.
A licensed professional engineer in both Washington and Montana, Bob will draw on SCJ staff from across business groups and offices for his project teams. SCJ has 100 employees and eight offices: Lacey, Centralia, Seattle, Ballard, Spokane, Wenatchee, and Vancouver in Washington, and one in Boulder, Colorado.
Locally, Bob has designed sites for many schools, colleges, libraries, fire stations, and residential developments. Looking around the area, it’s clear Bob can be proud of the part he’s played in building the community, through his work on projects like the Centennial Station Expansion and rail platform, Thurston County Emergency Operations Center, Saint Martin’s University buildings, Lacey College Street Library, Olympia’s Heritage Park Fountain and Heritage Park, and Tumwater Home Depot. Most recently he was part of a team working on five new elementary mini-buildings for the Olympia School District.
Outside of Thurston County, Bob’s portfolio includes City of Lynnwood sewer work, Gig Harbor fish passage culvert design, Port of Grays Harbor rail extension and security enhancement projects, and Mason County Tilley Road Maintenance Center.
