Falcolm E. Hull Joins ARCADIS as Technical Expert

Hull will advise on federal, state and local projects for water resources and water management

ARCADIS, the international consulting and engineering company, recently announced that it has hired Falcolm E. Hull as a technical expert in its Baton Rouge office. In this capacity, he will advise ARCADIS clients on federal, state and local projects related to water resources and water management.

Hull serves as co-project manager on the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources’ Violet Freshwater Diversion Project, which aims to reduce land loss in coastal Louisiana and help increase fish and wildlife productivity. Hull also serves as the deputy project manager for some $200 million in indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts through the New Orleans’ district of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Hull has nearly 40 years’ experience in environmental engineering, including 37 years with the Corps’ New Orleans district, where he held several planning and project management positions. Most recently, as projects branch chief, he was responsible for executing the district’s civil works program, valued at more than $300 million. He also successfully managed many large and complex water resources projects for flood control, hurricane protection, navigation and ecosystem restoration.

In addition to his field experience, Hull served as an adjunct professor at the University of New Orleans and Tulane University from 1989 to 1995. He holds numerous awards, licenses and certificates, including the Achievement Medal for Civilian Service (January 2006), the Commander’s Award for Civilian Service (April 2005) and the Organizational Leadership Award for Executives (June 1996). Hull earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Louisiana State University in 1971 and a master’s degree in civil engineering from Tulane University in 1976.

According to Hull, “After 37 years with the Corps, I’m truly excited about moving into the private sector. This is a tremendous opportunity to help ARCADIS’ clients and continue serving the wonderful people of New Orleans.”
