Lucas M. Chambers, PE, grew up on a small island in Sitka Sound in Southeast Alaska. Despite his hometown featuring only 14 miles of road, Lucas nurtured an interest in structure and design from an early age. He graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2010 and immediately returned to his home state to work as a civil design engineer for the Alaska Department of Transportation in Juneau. Lucas continued his career in transportation design at AKDOT for six years, where he met future business partner Garret Gladsjo on a bridge project in Northern Juneau. He joined proHNS as a co-owner and Principal Engineer in 2017.
A strong design engineer, Lucas’ expertise allowed proHNS to expand its services and bid on a larger variety of projects in the private, municipal, and statewide arenas. He also established the firm’s design best management practices and processes, and has grown into a skilled personnel manager, mentoring several staff and project engineers in their early careers. Lucas particularly prides himself on his pavement design, urban drainage design hydrology and hydraulic analysis, underground utility layout/sizing, and geometric roadway design skills. He handles all of proHNS’ City & Borough of Juneau projects, regularly working alongside municipal employees and engineers, utility companies, and the public. These projects vary widely in scope, ranging from road reconstruction to water distribution pump stations.
Lucas is a former President of the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Juneau Branch and serves as Chair of the City and Borough of Juneau’s Wetlands Review Board. He lives in Juneau with his wife Meghan and their dog Meeko, enjoying the bountiful nature of coastal Alaska. He is an avid forager, fisherman and hunter.
