Connor Ritter, Project Engineer, EI
WEA appealed to me because I instantly got a feel for the relaxed office environment and I enjoy being in Maine. Portland provides a lot of city amenities, but you are also close to the ocean and outdoors. Working in a small office gives me the flexibility and opportunities I’m looking for. I work on everything from site design, stormwater design, residential projects, commercial projects….the variety definitely keeps the workload fresh. My expertise is in Civil 3D, a great software that generates design features that would be otherwise difficult by hand. I also have a Remote Pilot Certification under the FAA’s Small UAS Rule Part 107 and enjoy flying our company drone.
Connor graduated from the University of Vermont in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and a Minor in Theatre. He enjoys playing competitive card games in his free time.
