Bart Hill has joined HDR as the practice leader for oil and gas facilities, based in HDR’s Chicago, Illinois office. Hill’s background adds strength to HDR’s facilities design services and depth to the company’s growing local distribution company and gas utility services.  

Hill comes to HDR from UniversalPegasus International where he served as a vice president for mid-continent operations and led a staff of over 60 engineers, surveyors and inspectors providing services to oil and gas clients throughout the United States.

With 25 years of industry experience, Hill is a recognized leader in the field. He holds a bachelor’s degree in physics from Illinois Wesleyan University, a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue University and an MBA from DePaul University.

About the future of the industry, Hill said, “Local distribution companies and utilities are adapting their approach for compliance and infrastructure improvements to stay on target financially. I enjoy helping clients solve challenges, and look forward to partnering with them on their projects and program work to adapt and particularly address the evolving integrity management market.”

Tom Young, senior vice president at HDR, referred to the expertise and leadership that Hill brings to HDR’s team. “Bart has specialized experience with facilities and pipeline engineering as well as field services—two areas critical to supporting our growing client base in the LDC/gas utility market. He has a rare combination of experience from an owner (Nicor Gas/AGL Resources), a leading research entity (Gas Technology Institute) and a consulting firm that gives him a unique perspective on how to help our clients solve their most complex problems.”
