Jonathan Startin has joined HNTB Corporation as as vice president and national program delivery consultant.

Jonathan is an extremely talented professional who brings tested insight and practical knowledge in successful P3 delivery and other alternative delivery methods.

HNTB Corporation, one of the nation’s leading infrastructure solutions and program delivery firms, announces the hiring of national expert, Jonathan Startin, CEng, MICE. Startin joined the firm on July 15, 2013, as vice president and national program delivery consultant and will office in New York City.

In his new role he will enable departments of transportation and other public clients across the country to select, procure and deliver infrastructure using public-private partnerships to ensure long-term value and budget certainty. Startin will counsel clients on alternative methods of delivery and help them structure complex transactions to make best use of scarce public funds, harness private sector innovation and provide a guaranteed level of service. He will continue to play a key supporting role on the Goethals Bridge Replacement, working as part of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s support team.

Startin is a well-respected expert in the delivery of transportation projects using public-private partnerships. He gained his professional civil engineering qualifications in the U.K., and has acted as a technical advisor on the innovative delivery of major projects in the United States, Asia and the U.K. For the past 8 years of his 33-year career, Startin has delivered advice to public sector clients across the United States, including the Texas Department of Transportation on technical and procurement engineering matters for the Interstate 35 and I-69 strategic corridors, as well as major projects, including the State Highway 130 Segments 5 & 6 and the I-635 Express Lanes. Additionally, he worked for the Virginia Department of Transportation on P3 guidance manuals and projects such as Route 460 and for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s Goethals Bridge Replacement.

“Jonathan is an extremely talented professional who brings tested insight and practical knowledge in successful P3 delivery and other alternative delivery methods,” said David Downs, PE, vice president and program delivery national practice leader. “We’re fortunate to have Jonathan’s expertise, helping our clients get best value from the procurement process and deliver their most important transportation projects successfully.”

He joins a team of dedicated professionals who help state, municipal and transportation authority clients across the country identify and analyze innovative financing methods and project delivery options, allowing those organizations to implement vitally important infrastructure projects years earlier than if those same projects had been financed and delivered by conventional means.

Startin earned a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the University of Leeds, U.K., in 1980. He is an active member of the Institution of Civil Engineers.
