Leading Perspectives

May 18, 2021

Since taking the helm of our Indianapolis office in 2019, Brian Grimes, P.E, has continued to drive a client-centric philosophy, strengthen business operations, and manage multi-million dollar deals. 

Brian’s engineering background spans 20 years, with responsibilities including design, project management, construction, commissioning, and technical oversight.

When you started at Ross & Baruzzini Indianapolis, what were your goals? 

My goals were centered on two main points - expanding our project portfolio, specifically high performance buildings, and developing new relationships across different market sectors throughout Indiana. 

What kinds of projects is the Indy team working on?

Our primary focus right now is Higher Education with a mix of K-12, healthcare, government, and industrial projects. 

How does the Ross & Baruzzini approach facilitate success across this range of project types?  

The key is teamwork. By collaborating and sharing technical expertise across all our offices across the country, we can execute projects that would normally be out of reach for most engineering companies. 

In your time with Ross & Baruzzini what has been your favorite project so far and why?

The INFOSYS LEED Platinum project is one of my favorite projects so far. It is a large, multi-building project with the potential for design and construction of several more buildings over the next decade.

Another top choice is the Indiana University School of Medicine project. This is a large project in downtown Indianapolis with the potential to be a spotlight project for many years to come.

Looking ahead, where would you like to see the Indy office in the next five years?

I am working towards growing and diversifying our client list while continuing to provide excellent engineering solutions to current partners. 

Describe Ross & Baruzzini in five words.
