Peter Loomis is an environmental engineer with over two decades of experience in water and wastewater treatment areas at CDM Smith. “Seeing something go from an idea to a concept to a plan to a design and then to implementation is incredibly exciting and inspiring. I really enjoy seeing a new idea that is in its infancy and watching that idea come to fruition,” he says.
His expertise lies in conducting water and wastewater treatment plant planning, design, and construction management, collection system and distribution system planning, design and construction management, water supply planning, master planning, procurement, installation and start-up, alternatives analysis, and permitting.
In one of his most notable projects, Peter served as the project manager and commissioning manager for CDM Smith’s DC Water project. He led the design and start-up teams to deliver a $215 million facility that lowered operating costs, reduced the facility’s carbon footprint, and improved energy efficiency.
Peter’s ability to conceptualize and lead projects remotely is a valued asset to his team. “At CDM Smith, I have worked on design projects on all 7 continents, but I’ve only visited 3 of those continents,” Peter says. “It just proves that interesting things can be found anywhere.”
