The solid waste consulting firm, Gershman, Brickner & Bratton Inc. (GBB), Fairfax, Virginia, has announced Bradley T. Kelley has joined the firm as senior project engineer.
Kelley has more than 20 years of engineering design experience and has worked on the concept and design of a multitude of processing systems for municipal solid waste (MSW), single stream, construction and demolition debris (C&D), biomass and waste-to-energy (WTE) projects.
As a design engineer, Kelley has used 3-D computerized drafting technology for component manufacturing and processing layouts and has hands-on skills with system installations and experience with hydraulics, electrical and logic programming.
Prior to joining GBB, Kelley was sales design engineer at Bulk Handling Systems (BHS), Eugene, Oregon, a firm that designs, engineers, manufactures and installs sorting and handling systems for the recycling, solid waste, demolition and power generation industries. Previously, he was senior mechanical engineer at West Salem Machinery Inc., Salem, Oregon, a manufacturer of grinding, screening, and conveying equipment for the biomass and lumber industry. Before that, he was mechanical drafter and project engineer for various manufacturers of machinery where he designed a range of high-end automated equipment.
"Brad brings to GBB a wealth of solid and relevant engineering, design and processing equipment experience that will prove highly valuable for us going forward with evaluations and procurements of ‘one bin for all’ facilities and MSW processing plants before alternative conversion projects," says Bob Brickner, executive vice president of GBB. "Having experience working at integrated solid waste equipment systems providers, like I did early in my career, is definitely a great background for the consulting niche that GBB performs for our clients.”
"The opportunity to use my technical background and skillset to focus on solid waste handling systems and equipment from a consultant's perspective is an exciting and logical new development and expansion of my career," says Kelley. "I look forward to helping GBB's clients develop efficient, cost-effective solutions and working with colleagues that have different and complementary solid waste expertise."
Kelley will work from GBB's headquarters. He can be reached at email@example.com and at 800-573-5801.
