Barnes, Melanie

CMT has strengthened its ability to provide value-added services to airports by bringing aboard a veteran aviation professional. Melanie Barnes, PE, has over 17 years’ experience working with airports in Indiana – including Indianapolis International – and airports of all sizes throughout the state and the Midwest.

“Melanie takes a client-focused approach to her work, which is a perfect fit for CMT’s philosophy of always looking for ways to bring additional value to the projects we complete,” said Brad Hamilton, PE, CMT’s Director of Aviation. “She will be a great resource for our current clients, and we’re excited about the many opportunities she’ll have to share her knowledge and expertise with other airports in the region.”

Melanie has led numerous airfield design and construction projects in her career. She is also a talented aviation planner. This combination of engineering and planning experience provides her a unique perspective on airport development that will allow her to take a big-picture view of a client’s needs and provide optimal improvement solutions that maximize available funding.
