Nathan Silberhorn

Senior Project Manager - Transportation

Fort Collins, CO

"Nathan Silberhorn and the team at Ayres were a pleasure to work with on Broomfield's County Commons Roundabout Reconstruction project.  The Team's technical expertise and knowledge, as well as their attention to detail, was evident throughout design.  Nathan and his team worked closely with project stakeholders, to fully understand the issues/concerns, to ensure project goals were met and provided effective solutions that were within budget.  Their timely responses to Broomfield requests, inquiries, and/or questions ensured that the project stayed on schedule.  I look forward to working with Ayres Associates again on a future project."
Christian Thompson
Broomfield, CO

My ability to deliver exceptional transportation services comes from my solid base of experience and my skills in applying the right resources to challenging problems. I am a senior project manager with over 25 years of transportation experience in the private and public sectors. I have extensive experience providing highway design and plan production for the Departments of Transportation in Colorado, lowa, Illinois, Texas, and New Mexico as well as the Federal Highway Administration Central Federal Lands.

My construction phase experience includes construction plans review, construction observation, and contractor and owner coordination. That experience helps me anticipate potential in-the-field issues during the design process.

My ability to nurture teamwork and elicit smart, creative solutions sets me apart. I cultivate long-term relationships with clients, coworkers, agency representatives, and project stakeholders by demonstrating that their contributions are valued. This all helps me take the lead in identifying, winning, and managing transportation work in Colorado and the surrounding region, as well as mentoring staff and taking good care of our clients.

My recent experience includes several Colorado DOT projects for which I led consultant and in-house development and design of interchange, flood repair, intersection realignment, interstate reconstruction, and resurfacing projects. I provide utility coordination, agency coordination, environmental reports, and public involvement.
