George Foutris

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
In high school, I wanted to become an architect. It was a dream of mine to design buildings that would be part of a city’s skyline. My high school counselor suggested I look into Civil Engineering and the rest is history.

What do you do?
I’m a Project Engineer in the Transportation-Highways group here at HR Green.

What gets you excited about coming to work every day?
Each day there is always a new challenge to tackle. Whether you are working on a small resurfacing job or a proposed partial cloverleaf interchange with three proposed roundabouts. No two days are ever the same at HR Green.

What do you wish people knew about HR Green?
HR Green stands for Howard Ruggles Green!

Why is Building Communities Improving Lives important?
Building Communities is what civil engineers do but it is equally as important as engineers to keep in mind how our projects affect others. Our Mission of “Building Communities. Improving Lives.” goes hand in hand with HR Green and pushes us as engineers to always do what is best for the communities we work in.

What qualities do you think a future HR Green engineer should have?
A future HR Green engineer should be eager to learn new things and ready to take on a challenge!

If you were a fortune reader, what would you predict as the future of your industry?
If I was a fortune reader, I would predict the future of our industry is…paperless! More and more clients are requiring our designs to be done in 3D and in the future, I believe large paper plan sets will be a thing of the past. I predict review meetings will focus on reviewing a 3D model which in turn could be directly sent to the contractor.
