Rob Harris

Vice President, Operations Director, Power & Utilities


Since entering the construction industry in 1997, Rob’s affinity for mechanical and electrical intensive projects has been readily apparent. This has remained his focus since joining PIDC in 2004, with a particular emphasis on the power & utilities industry. Rob has played a key role in a number of cogeneration projects, including oversight of a large landfill-gas-to-energy (LFTGE) plant project in Rhode Island and a 14MW cogeneration project in downtown Boston.

The vast majority of projects Rob oversees require early design development, conceptual budgeting, long-lead procurement, intense field coordination and a well-planned startup/commissioning effort. Rob’s unwavering concentration on project details — while conveying the owners’ needs to the design team — make him an invaluable asset for both PIDC and our clients.

A graduate of Northeastern University, Rob earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering with a concentration in Structural Engineering, along with a minor in Business Administration. Away from PIDC, Rob enjoys spending time with his wife and two young children. He is also an accomplished woodworker and finish carpenter.
