Welcome Adam blazejowski and frank russell!

We are starting 2022 with two new faces at DBA – a big welcome to Adam Blazejowski, EI and Frank Russell, EI.  Both will be based in our office in Knoxville, Tennessee, but will soon be like the rest of us at DBA – traveling to interesting project sites all over the U.S.  They will be working on many of the deep foundation and earth retention projects that are our staples.

Adam is  from London, Canada where he completed his B.S. degree in civil engineering at Western University in 2020.  He came to the United States to complete an M.S. in geotechnical engineering at Virginia Tech, where he performed research on the cyclic strength of sands.  Adam is also interested in risk-based design and reliability in geotechnical engineering.

Frank  is from Hickory Flat, Georgia and graduated from Auburn University with his B.S. in 2019 and his M.S. in 2021 in civil engineering.  During graduate school, he was a recipient of the Long Family Endowed Civil Engineering Graduate Study Scholarship from the ADSC – The International Association of Foundation Drilling. His graduate school research evaluated the methods used in pile load testing across Alabama Department of Transportation projects. 

Mike Holloway in DFI Magazine

The July/August 2012 issue of Deep Foundations features one of our newest employees, Dr. Michael Holloway, in its “People, Projects and Equipment” section.  The article, entitled “D. Michael Holloway: Strong Mind, Strong Personality,” follows Mike’s education and career as a geotechnical engineer from his “outrageous streak” in high school to his current position at DBA.  If you are interested in learning more about the “strong mind” and “strong personality” that is Mike Holloway, click the link above or check your mailbox for a copy of the latest copy of Deep Foundations, only from DFI.

This is not the first time we have been lucky enough to have one of our own featured in the “People, Projects and Equipment” section.  Some of you may remember that Dan was featured in the Winter 2011 issue.  A copy of that article and the associated blog post can be found here.
