Aguirre & Fields, a leading engineering company in Texas and Oklahoma, is pleased to announce Robert Doty, P.E., ENV SP as our new Houston Community Lead.
Currently serving as Aguirre & Fields Roadway Group Lead, Doty sees his new role as one that goes beyond sales, allowing him to effectively utilize his community outreach skills to improve the quality of life for all who reside, or travel within, the Greater Houston Area.
“Traditionally, community leads are tied to sales only, but the approach we take at Aguirre & Fields is more comprehensive,” says Doty, “allowing me to reach out to cities, counties, and municipalities to assess their objectives, and determine if what they need aligns with the resources we have at Aguirre & Fields.”
“I’m looking forward to working with Robert in his new role,” adds Chief Marketing Officer Mark Gribble, P.E. “His ability to walk clients through challenging situations on projects will allow us to impact more communities. His technical knowledge, coupled with his ability to communicate to the client, makes him the perfect fit for this role.”
Doty has provided project management for multi-disciplined engineering projects throughout his 21 years in engineering. He has specialized in the planning and design of roadways, bridges, traffic signals, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, storm sewer and drainage, traffic control plans, and signing and pavement markings. He has also provided public involvement, value engineering, and resource management services to support projects, both in the design phase and throughout construction.
His most recent project is Cullen Boulevard on the University of Houston campus, which transforms the existing boulevard into a pedestrian and bike-friendly corridor, while enhancing safety, drainage capacity, and connectivity throughout the local neighborhood.
“With everything we plan and design, we focus on making positive impacts and innovations to benefit as many people as possible.” says Doty. “Sometimes all it takes is one specific project to kickstart the revitalization of an area and improve life for everyone in and around that community.”
