Edward Brilhart III, C.E.T., Field Operations Manager

WDP Office: Manassas

Ed has been with WDP since 2014 and was promoted from Senior Inspector to Field Operations Manager (FOM) in early 2020. During his time as a Senior Inspector, he provided Special/Construction Inspections & Materials Testing on a number of county schools, county government, and private sector projects. As FOM, he oversees all aspects and phases of WDP’s responsibilities on construction, special inspections and materials testing projects. He is also involved in the training of new technicians and assists our laboratory manager in WDP’s in-house laboratory as needed.

“Being the acting Field Operations Manager for WDP’s T & I Division is a great honor.  To be a part of the training and development process that WDP uses for its technicians is something that I enjoy doing.  The teaching and insight provided by WDP to our technicians gives them the tools needed to perform thorough and accurate inspections that clients have come to expect from WDP.  Along with assisting in the training of our technicians, the day to day interaction with contractors and clients is something that I also enjoy being a part of.  In addition, I am proud of providing proper staffing to our jobs and ensuring that WDP is giving our clients the best possible product after our inspections are complete. WDP, as a company, has always provided its employees great opportunities and an atmosphere that encourages helping everyone succeed.”
