PITTSBURGH, March 11, 2013 — Mitchel Strain has joined Bowman Consulting as a senior environmental project manager at the firm’s Pittsburgh office. He will be chiefly responsible for ensuring National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) compliance is maintained across all planning stages of the firm’s multiuse civil works projects.

Strain is a highly accomplished environmental professional with nearly 24 years’ experience providing strategic business planning, project management, business development, contract management, and regulatory expertise in a variety of environmental areas.

Prior to joining Bowman, Strain served as a senior environmental professional for several organizations, including 20 years in private environmental consulting practice, and most recently as a project manager and ecologist with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Huntington, W.Va.
