Holt’s relationship-based culture coupled with responsive communication and action makes us the consultant of choice for state and local governments.

As a result, they possess a keen awareness of the attributes of highly successful projects: attention to quality, timely execution of the work, and communication, with the ultimate goal being to exceed client expectations.

Here at Holt, employees are the Firm’s most valuable asset. We are committed to an environment that fosters teamwork, provides opportunities and challenges for each employee to grow and reach their full potential, and recognizes and rewards them for their accomplishments, contributions, and outstanding performance. This type of environment generates a naturally self-motivating atmosphere, which results in a genuine desire by each employee to give the client 110%.

Holt is seeking a highly motivated Drainage/Water Resources Engineer who will be responsible for design efforts for transportation infrastructure and development projects. Tasks will include, but are not limited to, preparation of technical studies and reports, engineering design concepts, construction plans, specifications, opinions of construction costs, and assistance during construction phase services including field observation.

• Licensed Professional Engineer in SC, GA, or NC, or the ability to become licensed is preferred.
• Perform design and coordinate drainage preparation of plans and details using AutoCAD/Civil-3D, MicroStation, Bentley Design Software, GeoPAK Drainage and MS Office.
• Demonstrated work experience with hydrologic and hydraulic computer programs including HEC-RAS, HEC-HMS, HY-8, SWMM, and ArcGIS.

A successful candidate will have a thorough knowledge and application of all FHWA and state DOT design standards and specifications and the ability to balance the need for independent and collaborative efforts.

They know the airport business inside and out; from developing successful funding procurement strategies, to designing, bidding, and construction oversight.  I observed the various challenges they faced during each of these phases and their ability to finesse through and overcome these challenges. I’ve found that the Holt Team takes consulting to a new level. Talk about responsiveness, whether it be during normal working hours, after hours, or on weekends, their response time exceeds my expectations…if you are looking for a consulting company that knows how to get it done, is available and responsive 24/7, and is in your court, then I strongly encourage you to consider Holt Consulting Company.
