Steve has over 25 years of roadway & bridge construction experience. He has learned the importance of working within the constraints of varying budgets while maintaining and prioritizing local infrastructure. After relocating to Nashville, TN in 1995, Mr. Mullins worked with private contractors and gained experience with numerous federal, state and local paving projects. Some of his duties included employee payroll, cost estimation, and customer service. In 2003, he began working with a consulting firm at Metro Public Works as a construction inspector. He produced sidewalk and curb ramp estimates for the 20% Sidewalk Repair Program and provided documentation for pedestrian access and walkway upgrades, ensuring ADA compliance.
Steve joined Collier Engineering in 2005 where he started as a construction inspector on various roadway and bridge projects. Due to his intimate knowledge of the 20% Sidewalk Repair Program, he was immediately placed in charge of the program. Then in 2014, he was promoted to construction manager. His duties currently include overseeing field personnel and inspectors, project scheduling and facilitation, attending pre-bid and pre-construction meetings, and overseeing construction inspection activities at Collier Engineering. Mr. Mullins believes that teamwork thrives on trust, and there are only two things that promote trust – a strong work ethic & honesty.
