Jim Williams Brierley Associates


Brierley Associates recently announced the addition of Jim Williams, PE, to its Trenchless Services sector.


Williams has more than 24 years of experience in underground engineering and construction with special emphasis in horizontal directional drilling (HDD). His experience includes complex HDD design, design-build, construction feasibility, risk assessment, execution planning and project management. Williams is a licensed engineer in 15 states including Texas and Florida.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the University of Florida, Williams spent the next 12 years serving as a design and project manager at a Florida based engineering consultancy. In 2005, he founded an engineering firm specializing in HDD and trenchless projects that were executed throughout the United States. In 2010, he joined Mears Group, where he served as the engineering manager for one of the largest HDD contractors in the world. While at Mears, he helped plan and complete many land and marine-based HDD projects, including several award winners.

Within Brierley Associates’ Trenchless Services sector, Williams will work closely with Brian Dorwart, Tom Pullen and Nick Strater.

“Jim further increases our bench strength in HDD planning and design, and provides us the unique perspective of an experienced contractor,” Starter said. “We’ve worked with Jim for years, and we’re truly excited he’s decided to join Brierley Associates.”

Williams will be based in the Texas region, where he will work with our Austin and Houston offices to provide assistance to the energy industry, and other market sectors using HDD and trenchless technologies.
