Sain Associates is proud to welcome Brandon Kennedy as graduate design engineer. In his new position within our Traffic Department, Brandon will be responsible for handling traffic signal design, signal timing projects and traffic studies, among other assignments.
For many months, Sain Associates provided civil engineering design services to the City of Birmingham’s Cahaba Road transportation enhancement project that was completed and opened last summer. The project included a new roundabout, landscaping and elements to better tie together the Birmingham Zoo to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Due to the hard work of many, the project was a great success that has received a lot of positive feedback.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Sain Associates!
There are so many wonderful things about the holiday season, and at Sain Associates, we really love Christmas movies. So much so that in years past we’ve held our holiday party at the Alabama Theater to watch movies. Those parties have always been big hits, but every year around this time you’ll hear us quoting our favorites around the office. And we have some strong opinions about what the best ever Christmas movie is. This year, we asked everyone to share their personal favorite, and the results are pretty interesting. We couldn’t choose just one!
A few weeks ago, Sain Associates Principal/Owner, Joe Meads, wrote a blog post that was inspired by his daughter’s first college essay. In the essay and the blog, Joe answered three questions that explored his career path to help him determine what he wishes he had known at the start of the journey. We thought this was an interesting exercise, so we presented it to our team leaders as well.
It’s been a great year at Sain Associates, and we’re very thankful for many blessings in our professional and personal lives. On Friday, November 20, 2015, we celebrated with our annual Thanksgiving lunch. We had employees and their families in attendance, plus our old neighbors from Sain Centre, Jensen Shipping, who we always enjoy spending time with.
We’re excited that in the past few weeks, two new team members have joined Sain Associates. Chris Jenkins and Roger Joiner are joining Sain with a wide variety of past experience and doing great in the new roles so far.
A big thank you to everyone who attended our Client Appreciation Fish Fry on Friday, September 11, 2015! We had a great turn out and enjoyed spending time with clients, co-workers and colleagues and were proud to reveal our new branding images that we’ve been working on for several months.
