Rich Crane has joined PS&S as a Senior Director in the company’s Water Resources Department. He will be based in the Company’s Wall, New Jersey, regional office.
Rich has 37 years of experience in feasibility studies, planning, process mechanical design, contract administration and project management for wastewater treatment plant and pump station design and related construction projects. He began his career in the wastewater field by working on various projects for the New York City Department of Environmental Protection including several large treatment facilities which treated between 125-350 million gallons of wastewater per day. Rich was involved in the design, startup, training and construction administration of wastewater treatment facilities in all five NYC Boroughs.
Rich was hired to strengthen PS&S’s wastewater capabilities, and the decision is already paying dividends. He has a long and successful relationship with the South Monmouth Regional Sewerage Authority (SMRSA) having designed both their original cogeneration system installation and the cogeneration system upgrade. PS&S was just recently awarded a construction phase services contract for the system upgrade project. The PS&S team is proud to continue that relationship.
“I have known about PS&S and its capabilities for years,” Rich commented. “I wanted to join this team not only because of the strength of the company’s water resources group, but because of the level of talent throughout the company. Add in the wide variety of projects and the diverse client base, and the decision to join PS&S was a no-brainer.”
Rich and his wife Alberta have three adult sons and reside in Freehold Township. Outside the office, Rich believes in giving back by working with the next generation of engineers. He has served as an instructor for Rutgers University helping recent graduates study for the hydraulics portion of the PE exam.
“Rich brings PS&S’s wastewater capabilities to a new level,” said John Vena, PS&S’s Associate Principal in charge of the company’s Wall Regional Office. “His expertise increases our opportunities to secure larger and more significant projects in the area of wastewater treatment, pumping stations, solids handing facilities and cogeneration.”
