A native of Helena, Alabama, Ethan Hand joins Sain as a designer on our Civil Engineering team. His work experience includes site design, roadway design, construction inspection, and surveying. Before working at Sain, Ethan graduated from the University of Alabama in 2017 and worked as a consultant in Tuscaloosa. 

One of his favorite parts of being a designer is getting a new project and creating the design from the ground up. He says “site design to me is like putting together a puzzle, and I love the satisfactory feeling when something is complete.”   Ethan attributes this, at least in part, to his father, who was a civil engineer and recently retired from ALDOT in 2017.

Ethan and his wife Caroline live in Tuscaloosa with their 2-year old lab mix, Drake. When Ethan’s not working, he enjoys hunting, fishing, riding 4-wheelers or dirtbikes, and watching the Atlanta Braves. Ethan also considers himself a huge car guy, so he’s constantly working on his truck or Jeep.
