Jeff Ballard, PE
Jeff started his career at RH2 in 2011 when Public Works Management was acquired by RH2. Jeff has a Bachelor of Science degree from Oregon Institute of Technology in Civil Engineering. Jeff has covered a wide spectrum of assignments in his career. He was the contract Public Works Director for two cities for almost 10 years, and has been the Contract City Engineer for three cities for 15 years. After transitioning to RH2, he has used the opportunity to expand his design experience for larger projects. In March 2014, Jeff was the PM that coordinated the design and construction necessary to address drought conditions under a compressed schedule of five months for a project that would normally span two years. This project required complete design and construction of 15,000 linear feet of transmission pipeline, upgrades to existing pump stations in the Cities of Phoenix and Talent, and a new temporary pump station in the City of Ashland.
Recently Jeff has had the opportunity to manage a 36-inch bore under Interstate 5, coordinate the design of a new baseball complex, and secure funding for fire damaged communities in the Rogue Valley. He is currently the manager of the Medford office and is always searching for opportunities to showcase RH2 abilities in the Rogue Valley across all disciplines. He is always up for competition and was one of the masterminds behind the remote offices teaming up to challenge the Bothell office to a softball game at one of our recent company retreats. He has a hard time remembering who won, so it may have to happen again.
