Elizabeth Burkhart initially pursued a structural engineering degree because she could use science and technology to solve practical problems. As a result, Liz has spent over 20 years designing, maintaining, and managing civil infrastructure, including navigation structures and roadway assets.
She is active in professional organizations that push industry to improve the quality and efficiency of infrastructure, including the Transportation Research Board, ASCE’s Coastal, Ocean, Ports & River Institute, and the World Navigation Congress (PIANC).
As Executive Vice President of Business Development, Liz leads Collins’ ongoing efforts to build and maintain business relationships and strategic partnerships. This has led to relationships with non-traditional teaming partners who bring new technical approaches to age-old infrastructure issues. Liz looks to long-term relationships that bring mutual benefit to all stakeholders.
