Civil Infrastructure Associates of Murfreesboro recently added senior designer Glen Dodson to its staff. He will produce construction documents for the company and has more than two decades of experience working on water and wastewater treatment plants, wastewater lines, site design, landfills, roadways, parks and greenways.
Company president Linda Sullivan says, “Among the strengths Glen brings to our team are his knowledge of water and wastewater systems and how cities benefit when those systems are adequate and performing well.”
Some of his recent project experiences include working on Murfreesboro’s NW Broad Street Sanitary Sewer Pump Station, Franklin’s Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion and sewer rehabilitation for Metro Water Services in Nashville.
“I took drafting in high school and I liked it,” says Dodson, who graduated from DuPont High School in Hermitage, about what inspired him to get into his line of work. After earning his certified detailing drafter certificate, he worked for a year at Vanderbilt and then was employed by EMPE in Nashville for 10 years and by Hart, Freeland, Roberts for 16 years.
“That’s how I got into the civil side of drafting,” Dodson says. “I like the problem-solving aspects of it. and I like the fact that I can see the things that I do out in public. It’s nice when you drive past a greenway or a building and know that you worked on site work there.”
Dodson lives in College Grove with his wife. They have a grown son and daughter. He has been competing in triathlons for four years. Among his other project experience are City Park Brentwood, Wilson Pike Greenway, the Tennessee State Veteran’s Home in Clarksville, the Army National Guard Readiness Center in Tullahoma and the Manchester Sports Complex.
