Welcome to CDM Smith.

Richard Molongoski, PE, BCEE

Vice President, Client Service Leader

Senior envi­ron­men­tal engineer and sector leader for CDM Smith’s food and beverage division, Rick Molongoski has managed projects ranging from the design and construc­tion of complex process water treatment and reuse plants to industrial utility systems. His industrial water expertise has helped heavyweight clients like Anheuser-Busch, J.R. Simplot and Kraft Foods ensure treatment opti­miza­tion and regulatory compliance.

What does “listen. think. deliver.” mean to you? In simple terms, it’s what our clients expect. We must listen to understand all the issues, impli­ca­tions and concerns surrounding their projects. It is then our obligation to think creatively and come up with logical options and analyses that allow us to make sound recom­men­da­tions. Finally, we must deliver the most feasible solution in a highly profes­sional, concise and clear deliverable.
