Phil Coughlan

Sustainable Development Practice Director

I am an environmental planner focused on making sustainable projects come to life – everything from renewable energy facilities, mass transit infrastructure, and recycling/composting programs, to eco-manufacturing facilities. Early on, I thought there must be a way to balance business and environmental conservation, and I’ve found that at Herrera with projects that both serve and restore our communities. Otherwise, I’m raising kids, skiing, hiking, trying new brews, building stuff, or tearing stuff down around the house.

Proudest Moment on the Job
Watching the 2,500 tons of recycled plastic I helped divert from the waste stream find its way into a brand new manufactured building product.
