Scott is a Maine native, raised in Strong and a graduate of Mt. Abram High School in 1983. Following graduation from Bowdoin College, he performed geological duties for an engineering firm before deciding to seek an engineering degree. Scott earned Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Geological Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla (Missouri School of Mines) and re-entered the work force in 1994, moving back to Maine with his family in 1997.
Scott brings twenty years of wide-ranging experience on geotechnical, environmental, construction, geologic/geohydrologic, and rock engineering projects throughout Maine and the northeastern U.S. to Main-Land projects. Scott develops work scopes, coordinates and performs field exploration and laboratory testing programs, performs engineering/geoengineering analyses, and prepares technical reports providing engineering and construction recommendations.
Interesting projects Scott has worked on include:
- 45-acre retail development with design for rock cuts, light weight fill over landslide susceptible areas, and surcharge for preconstruction settlement – Augusta, Maine
- 17-acre retail development site with design for H-piles, lightweight fill, preconsolidation with wick drains, and overexcavation of peat and miscellaneous fill- Portland, Maine
- Hydrogeologic aspects of ground water supply, Mt. Abram Ski Area – Greenwood, Maine
- Geotechnical aspects of building and site design, resort casino – Oxford, Maine
