Curt Walker is a Senior Consultant based in Knoxville with more than 30 years of experience focused on developing, directing, and implementing ex situ and in situ remediation technologies, often for the United States Department of Energy (DOE).


He offers clients deep practical experience in Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) protocols involving removing and remediating chemical and radiological constituents of concern.

Curt’s technical expertise includes facility decontamination and decommissioning (D&D), environmental characterization, and remediation; he is also adept at communicating and negotiating with clients, state and federal regulatory agencies, and public entities. He uses these skills to develop facility-specific demolition approaches, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA) waste disposition alternatives, potential land-use risk scenarios, and environmental remediation activities—all tailored to CERCLA requirements.

Over the course of his service in environmental management roles for DOE remedial projects, Curt became adept at managing environmental and waste compliance work. He has managed multimillion-dollar projects in compliance with the DOE Earned Value Management System and built strong teams and effective workflows using direct reports, staff augmentation, subcontracts, and short-term corporate resource assignments to align work with project scopes. To maximize benefits to his clients, Curt plans and manages costs and schedules across the life of projects, relying upon his technical background and experience working with stakeholders. In this way, he bridges the gap between D&D of contaminated sites and remediation and beneficial reuse of those same sites, planning large and complex projects with the end in mind and finding synergies before work even begins.
