David Batts
Director, Stormwater System Solutions

storm water systems houstonDavid Batts grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast where he spent every free moment he had on the water.  It was fitting that as a professional he found himself helping protect the very ecosystem that he enjoyed as an adolescent.  Promoting innovative new water management strategies is as much of a passion as it is how he makes a living, and he often finds himself far from home presenting to anyone that will listen about his latest finding or lesson learned in his pursuit of perfection in Green Infrastructure Design and Construction Methods.  David joined Construction EcoServices in 2006 as the first employee in the Stormwater System Solutions business unit that he now runs. He is an avid fisherman and conservationist and spends as much time as possible with his wife and two boys enjoying nature.

Construction EcoServices has provided just that opportunity.
