Davis, Bowen & Friedel, Inc. (DBF), is pleased to announce that Andrew J. Scrutchfield, P.E. recently passed the Principles and Practice of Engineering Exam administered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering Surveying and is now officially a licensed engineer in the State of Delaware.

A graduate of New Jersey’s Stevens Institute of Technology, Scrutchfield received his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. Shortly thereafter he began the process to become a licensed engineer after successfully passing the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam in 2016.  After graduating, he worked on the design, implementation, and inspection of several large coastal engineering projects throughout New York and New Jersey, while also obtaining his Masters in Ocean Engineering with a concentration in coastal engineering from the Stevens Institute of Technology.

With over five years of coastal engineering experience, Scrutchfield became eligible to sit for the Civil Engineering Exam and was able to take the exam in April 2021.

Scrutchfield joined the firm in 2020 after relocating back to the Eastern Shore. He has since been working in the coastal engineering department from DBF’s Easton, Maryland office. Andrew has taken on vital roles on several of DBF’s ongoing coastal projects including, the site planning for living shoreline mitigation, stone groin rehabilitation, bulkhead replacement, and floating dock installation for a private client. Other notable projects he has worked on in the community include Goldsborough Neck Road Improvements in Talbot County, Maryland, as well as Ober Community Park in Caroline County, Maryland.

“Andrew is inherently passionate about preserving the infrastructure of our coastlines and is dedicated to making a difference in the coastal communities that he was born and raised around. All of us at DBF congratulate Andrew on his accomplishment and look forward to watching him grow as an engineer,” said Senior Coastal Manager, Ken Eaton, LEED Green Associate.
