Livonia, Michigan – OHM Advisors, an architect, engineering and planning firm committed to Advancing Communities, has announced that Steven L. Warren, PE, has joined the firm and will manage its new Saginaw, Michigan office.
A licensed professional engineer with 17 years of infrastructure design and construction experience. Warren most recently led operations for the Flint and Saginaw offices of Wilcox Professional Services where he worked for seven years. Wilcox saw all seven of its Michigan offices close after a planned merger fell through in early January 2013.
Having worked extensively with rural and urban communities, state transportation departments and road commissions, school districts and private entities throughout southern and mid-Michigan, Warren will be responsible for local project oversight, business development and operational management of the Saginaw office of OHM Advisors. He specializes in road design and construction, water main distribution design, sanitary sewer, inflow and infiltration reduction projects, sewer modeling as well as private development site plan review. He has significant experience with non-motorized transportation design and construction and has completed more than 20 park projects.
Four former Wilcox employees join Warren in the Saginaw office of OHM Advisors: Sean Tabascko, Ryan Bergquist, Vanessa Warren and Andrew Van Wormer. By late March, the firm anticipates having a total of 10 employees in this office, including civil, electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, computer-aided draftsmen, landscape architecture and construction professionals who will help serve current clients throughout the state and future clients in the Bay City/Midland/Saginaw area.
OHM Advisors President John Hiltz explains, “It’s sad to see a good firm fall on bad times. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to bring some very talented people onboard. We’re excited to have them on our team and focused on an area of the state we would like to serve.”
Warren is a graduate of the Michigan State University and routinely serves as a guest lecturer for the MSU School of Planning, Design and Construction on topics of site grading, road and trail geometrics, pavement design and storm water management.
