CLIVE, Iowa, March 1, 2021 – Dave Joens, PE, PLS has joined the McClure team as a Project Manager for Aviation.
Joens brings over 37 years of civil engineering experience in both the public and private sectors. While working for Pocahontas and Polk Counties as an Assistant County Engineer, he designed, managed, and administered many types of projects ranging from traffic control signing, platting, bridge inspection, traffic safety enhancement, survey projects, and administration responsibilities for the Ankeny Regional Airport.

At McClure, Joens will be working as a Project Manager. “I am looking forward to learning from a diverse and experienced group of aviation professionals while being able to convey some of the tricks and trades I have been able to pick up over the past three and a half decades.”
