Dave is a personable geotechnical engineer with more than 40 years of comprehensive experience. At Haley & Aldrich, he has been an officer-in-charge and project manager for geotechnical engineering and environmental evaluations for a broad range of projects in both New England and the Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. metropolitan area.
