Meet Our Pulaski Team

Let us introduce ourselves – we are Sain Associates’ Pulaski Team! In 1997, Sain Associates opened our branch office in Pulaski, Tennessee. Located an hour south of Nashville, our city is known for its tight-knit community and beautiful landscape.

Our office is nestled downtown, just a short walk from the Giles County Courthouse. Over the years, our office has grown in both number of employees and service offerings. We currently have four full-time employees and two interns on our team. Two of our team members work mostly from Sain’s Huntsville office but make the short commute to our office each week to collaborate on projects and facilitate comradery amongst our locations.

We offer a variety of services across Tennessee and team on projects with Sain’s Birmingham and Huntsville offices. Our team maintains on-call contracts with the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) and provides engineering and consulting services to various agencies, cities, and counties.

Our branch office continues to thrive and positively impact the City of Pulaski thanks to the expertise of our branch manager:
