Former Bryan County administrator and civil engineer Ray Pittman, P.E., has established Pittman Engineering Co. at Richmond Hill’s Crossroads Center, Suite 303, to provide civil engineering services to the region.
Pittman was Bryan County Administrator from 2012 to 2014. During that time, Caesarstone selected Bryan County to build their first plant in the United States and Pittman oversaw various projects including construction of water and sewer infrastructure. Pittman is a veteran of the U.S. Army and has lived in Richmond Hill for 29 years.
He was a Principal at Savannah based Thomas & Hutton Engineering Inc. from 1986- 2012. He has been a member and volunteered with the Rotary Club, United Way, Chamber of Commerce, High School, Boy Scouts, Junior Achievement, soccer and Friends of Fort McAllister.
Founder and controlling member of the new limited partnership, Pittman has appointed Jason Bryant, P.E., to lead their seven employees.
Bryant has lived in Richmond Hill for 16 years. In October, he left Thomas & Hutton after 20 years in various roles including principal and project manager, to join Pittman.
Pittman Engineering has more than 80 years of combined engineering experience in the area, which has flat land, poor soil quality and many flood plains.
“I enjoyed my time as county administrator but am delighted to return to my passion for civil engineering,” Pittman said. “I love this community, have lived here for nearly 30 years and am delighted to now realize my ambition to establish our firm in this town.”
