Jordan Phillips, P.Eng., MBAProject Manager | Project Engineer
My Role and Responsibilities
My name is Jordan, and I am part of Burnside’s Water and Wastewater leadership team, as well as the lead for our company’s linear infrastructure practice.
I am passionate about leveraging the resources, energies, talents, and expertise of my team members to collectively solve practical problems in projects involving watermain, sanitary sewers, forcemains, and trenchless construction.
I began my time at Burnside as a co-op student and joined on a full-time basis in 2007 after spending six months volunteering in Africa. Since that time, I have built a broad foundation of engineering experience, including bridges, roads, commercial site plans, storm infrastructure, water treatment facilities, pumping stations, watermain, sanitary sewers, and forcemains. I have worked in a variety of roles and have led team contributions in all project phases, including early feasibility and preliminary design, detailed design and tendering, and contract administration and construction inspection.
I have had the good fortune to be involved in unique and challenging projects, including the Three Cities Water Improvements for Millennium Challenge Account-Mozambique, which involved feasibility studies, 20-year master plans and detailed designs for drinking water infrastructure for three cities in Mozambique, and the tendering and construction of critical water infrastructure in of those cities. This work included a new conventional water treatment plant, two pumping stations, a reservoir and approximately 40 km of trunk watermain for the city of Nampula, which was all completed in 2014 and now brings clean drinking water to a population of over 500,000 people.
My Interests and Hobbies
When not at work, I enjoy being active, spending time outdoors, travelling, and spending time with my young family.
