Mr. Parr earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and an A.S. in Engineering. This U.S. Navy veteran is a licensed professional engineer with nearly 30 years of consulting experience in the environmental, water, and wastewater industries.

Mr. Parr has great proficiency working in multidisciplinary, collaborative settings on projects in the residential, commercial, and industrial markets. In the environmental industry, his experience includes remedial investigations, remedial construction, and remediation equipment operation and monitoring of liquid and vapor-phase adsorption systems, chemical and biological scrubbing systems, and thermal oxidizers. In the water and wastewater industries, his knowledge of pre-design, design, and construction-phase engineering of process mechanical and building mechanical systems supports his ability to provide mechanical design services for various systems. Examples include pumping stations, conveyance systems, treatment systems, odor control systems, combined heat and power systems, and heating ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.
