Troy Hays

Vice President & Senior Manager

“I became a consultant to help clients develop solutions to reduce their impact on the environment. Florida’s unique ecosystem and exquisite outdoor recreation opportunities are major reasons why my family and I came to Florida, so I am proud to work to protect Florida’s natural resources. I also take great pride in helping communities grow. As the Senior Manager/Vice President of Jones Edmunds’ Construction Administration group, we work to expand and upgrade Florida’s aging infrastructure to be sustainable for generations to come. I thrive when leading such growth opportunities.” – Troy Hays

Get to know Troy, our Jack of all trades! He is a Senior Manager/Vice President within our Construction Administration discipline. He has 14 years of experience serving as the Construction Administrator and Project Manager for a variety of projects throughout Florida. He also manages many projects that involve groundwater compliance monitoring, permitting, and contamination assessment/remediation. Troy earned his Bachelor’s in Geology from the University of Nebraska Omaha.  

Cool Projects: I really have a special place in my heart for projects that I work on for years and get to be a part of from beginning to end. The East Putnam County Regional Wastewater System has been in the works for 10–12 years, and the team and I here at Jones Edmunds assisted the County with all project elements –funding procurement, design, bidding, and construction. The large scale of this project is impressive for a community the size of Putnam County. Also impressive is that the County, with Jones Edmunds’ help every step of the way, was able to keep moving forward with this project despite the economic downturn of the late 2000s. I also worked on the Citrus County Landfill Solar-Powered Gas Remediation project for more than 10 years and am actually still working on it. This project is unique because we were able to change the perception in Florida on how landfills can cause impacts to groundwater.

Fun Fact: I am not one to back down from a challenge. Even while playing the last match with a broken jaw, I was awarded “Man of the Tournament” for being the most outstanding player at the inaugural Omaha invitational rugby tournament, which took place in a blizzard (I may have been too cold to feel any pain).
