Elizabeth Braswell, PE

  • Engineering Designer II
  • Based In Durham

I love working in the civil engineering field so I can see the impact my work has in the world. Growing up in Asheville, North Carolina made me appreciate the beauty of the natural world & realize how it affects the way we live. To be able to combine engineering, sustainability & the ability to live a healthy lifestyle is something Alta does very well, and I'm excited to play a role in that!

After spending 3 years in residential design specializing in site development, storm water management, utility design, and erosion & sediment control plans, Elizabeth joined Alta in 2022 to focus on active transportation design.
