Fuss & O’Neill Hires New Associate, James Otis, PE

After 15 years working with other firms, James “Jim” Otis, PE, has rejoined Fuss & O’Neill. Jim was previously employed by the firm from 1987 – 2003, and returns as an Associate in the Water & Natural Resources Department.

Jim has spent most of his career in Connecticut, managing and providing support for dam, bridge, solid waste, and other civil/environmental projects throughout the state. Jim’s return to Fuss & O’Neill was prompted by a desire to finish his career at a growing firm that offers a variety of projects. “I believe the diversity of projects contributes to the success of the firm. Fuss & O’Neill is a full-service firm with a solid reputation throughout New England.” Jim’s firsthand knowledge of the firm’s highly-qualified staff was another factor in his return.

As part of the Water & Natural Resources Department, Jim will work on dam repair/removal, stormwater and utilities, compliance/permitting, green infrastructure, and bridge repair/replacement projects. Jim will report to Phil Forzley, PE, who was very excited about Jim’s return. “I’m so thrilled that Jim is back! Jim brings decades of experience that will help our clients and help our junior staff. But, mainly, I’m happy to have this very talented colleague back home.”

Fuss & O’Neill’s Water & Natural Resources Department provides restoration, stormwater, flood control, wastewater, dam repair/replacement, coastal resiliency, wetlands, permitting, green infrastructure, and environmental compliance services throughout New England.
