HDR’s Minneapolis, Minnesota architecture studio has added Mark Bradby, P.E., as engineering principal. Bradby joins Amy Williams, managing principal. Prior to joining HDR, Bradby was a partner and senior engineer with BKV Group.
Charged with growing HDR’s local architectural engineering practice and ensuring that project goals are achieved, Bradby will specifically focus his efforts on supporting HDR’s growing health and education, science and technology markets.
With nearly two decades of project management experience and a passion for sustainability, Bradby is an accomplished mechanical engineer registered in Minnesota and 21 other states. His experience spans many market sectors, from historic preservation projects to medical facilities and data centers. His extensive knowledge of project planning, collaborative design and implementation and design innovation have helped him serve as a mechanical, electrical and plumbing leader for several large construction projects within the government and corporate sectors.
