Hole Montes’ Austin Brown earns engineering licensure
Austin Brown, a project manager at Hole Montes, has passed the PE Civil Transportation licensure exam through the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying.
The Principles & Practices of Engineering exam is the second of two tests certifying an individual meets specific qualifications in education, work experience and knowledge. Licensure is an important verification of expertise for engineers that is critical in safeguarding the public.
Brown joined Hole Montes in 2016 and works on the firm’s aviation team. Some of his notable experience includes managing runway, taxiway, ramp and hangar projects at Page Field, a runway rehabilitation project at Everglades Airpark, and taxiway extension and runway rehabilitation projects at Immokalee Regional Airport.
“Aviation engineering is a highly specific sector within the engineering field, and Hole Montes is the only Southwest Florida-based firm currently offering that service,” said Bob Mulhere, president of Hole Montes. “Having Austin on our aviation team is a tremendous asset, and anyone who has traveled by air in recent years – commercially and privately – has probably landed on a runway or walked through a hangar that Austin has designed.”
In addition to aviation, transportation and environmental engineering, Hole Montes’ services include landscape architecture, site development, land planning, permitting, zoning, storm water management design, surveying and mapping.
Brown earned a Bachelor of Science degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Florida.
