Cranston Engineering Group is pleased to welcome three new project engineers to our team!

Ryan Sheridan and Landon Watson have recently joined the Municipal Design Group, and Lizzy Kurre has joined the Development Design Group. All three are welcome additions to their groups since they were hired in the summer of 2017. They demonstrate the skills and embody the beliefs and core mission of Cranston.

Sheridan received his B.S. in Civil Engineering, along with a Project Management Certificate, from the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH, in 2016. Some of his studies at UNH included green building design, residential construction, stream restoration, surveying and mapping, and technical writing. His work experience can be described as diverse as he worked diligently for various land projects as a project engineer and performed topographical surveys. Sheridan’s proficiencies and knowledge help bolster the Municipal Group.

Watson earned his B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Oklahoma in Norman, OK, and his degree had an emphasis on geotechnical engineering. His educational endeavors included winning a regional championship in an American Society of Civil Engineers competition and GRB-IBS Undergraduate research with Dr. Kianoosh Hatami, PhD, at UO. In addition, Watson served as both an engineering intern and a field survey intern in North Texas before completing project engineer tasks related to single family home residential subdivision developments. His skills in AutoCAD Civil 3D and MicroStation are helpful to the Cranston team.

Kurre’s Civil Engineering degree is from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA, where she held a solid GPA in her studies. Coming from a background of Office Assistant prior to her university career, she is skilled in a variety of software systems and interpersonal communications. Kurre gained additional engineering experience prior to her position at Cranston during an internship at the Tenaska Power Generating Station, where she supported the Technical team, utilized her abilities in AutoCAD, and assisted the station operators with daily functions, maintenance and OSHA compliance. Her resourcefulness and savvy people-skills make her an asset to the Development side of Cranston’s staff.

We foresee good work coming from these new staff members as they grow their skill sets with the company!
