Jones & Henry Engineers is excited to join in the worldwide celebration of the 6th Annual Professional Engineers Day on August 4th, 2021! The first Professional Engineering license was issued in 1907 – just 19 years before Jones & Henry Engineers was founded in Toledo, Ohio, in 1926.
Since that time, licensure has expanded and Professional Engineers across the U.S. have made the commitment to protect the public health, safety, and welfare. Join us as we raise awareness about what it means to be a PE, recognize licensed PEs, and show appreciation for the work they do – each and every day.
Our team is dedicated to growth of our staff experience across all our office locations, expanding our capabilities in support of our clients’ engineering needs in Water Plants and Distribution, Wastewater Plants and Collection, as well as underground Infrastructure and a variety of support needs.
Growing our depth of expertise in our Cincinnati, Ohio office, we have recently welcomed Bryan Bailey, PE as our new Director of Water and Associate of the firm. Remarking on this recent addition to the team, Jake Meinerding, PE, and Cincinnati Office Director notes, “I could not be any happier to add Bryan Bailey to our team. His background in water treatment and process design will, and has already been, a boon to our office and company as a whole. This was a vital first step in growing our Cincinnati Office. Bryan brings a unique background and water treatment knowledge that will help our office flourish for years to come.”
Bryan offers, “In my time so far at Jones & Henry Engineers I have been impressed with the longevity of the relationships the team has with their clients and how invested Jones & Henry Engineers becomes in these communities. I am excited to be part of that tradition and look forward to building upon the past experiences and develop new ones.”
Bryan brings with him a tremendous depth of expertise in the water industry. Bryan graduated from The Ohio State University in 1996, where he gained his Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering. He earned his Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Wright State University and lastly, his Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Dayton. Bryan has held leadership positions within manufacturing and engineering companies, designing, and managing projects involving Drinking Water, Industrial Wastewater, Stormwater, Remediation Solutions, as well as the Design/Build of new commercial and manufacturing facilities. Bryan has vast experience in leading “alternative delivery” projects with multi-disciplined engineering teams. His work has been as close to home as in Ohio, and as far away as Mexico, Germany, Sweden, and Australia. Bryan enjoys working in the industry, noting that after working on global projects for the last 10+ years, he is excited to help grow the Jones & Henry Engineers water group and work in support of local communities in our region. He holds a Professional Engineering license in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, and Kentucky.
In honor of Annual PE day, we asked Bryan why he became an engineer, to which he replied, “My motivation to be an engineer has its origins back in the days as a young child when I built houses with my Grandpa and Grandma. That feeling of creating and building was so tangible to me that I wanted that experience in my career. I love solving problems and helping people,
which is what we do as engineers.” On that note, we look forward to solving many challenges and supporting clients across Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan with Bryan as our new Director of Water.
