Danish engineering and design consultancy Ramboll has opened a new office in Minneapolis. Todd Renville joins the new office as a principal, while Shauna Dallmer joins the existing Houston office as a principal.

Copenhagen-based Ramboll is one of the largest global engineering and design consultancies, with revenues over $2 billion last year. Founded in 1945, the firm employs 13,000 people globally, with a strong presence in the Nordics, UK, North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific. Ramboll works across the areas of Transport, Planning & Urban Design, Buildings, Water, Energy, and Environment & Health.

The Danish professional services firm started operating in the US in 1982, and has since grown to have dozens of offices across the country, from Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon. Now, the consultancy has opened a new office in Minneapolis, Minnesota, adding Todd Renville as a principal at the new location. Ramboll has also added Shauna Dallmer as a principal at its Houston, Texas office.

Todd Renville boasts decades of consulting experience in hydrogeology, property redevelopment, due diligence, and environmental construction management, among other areas. He is an expert in construction operations and contractor compliance oversight, with additional experience in water-based construction, erosion control, and invasive aquatic wildlife/vegetation.

Before joining Ramboll, Renville was a vice president and principal environmental scientist at engineering consultancy giant AECOM. Before that, he was principal environmental scientist at URS, which was acquired by AECOM in 2014. Prior to that, Renville was a Regional Manager at EnecoTech Midwest. He started his career as a hydrogeologist at Groundwater Technology.

He holds an MBA from the University of St. Thomas, as well as a BS in geology from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

Meanwhile, Shauna Dallmer, a professional engineer with decades of experience in process and environmental engineering/consulting, will join Ramboll’s Houston office. She has deep expertise in delivering multidisciplinary project services that cover entire project lifecycles, partnering with owners, investors, and engineering firms. Dallmer has extensive knowledge related to federal and state environmental regulations.

Prior to joining Ramboll, Dallmer was a Senior Project Manager with TITAN Engineering. In her new role, she will lead a newly assembled team serving the chemical and oil & gas clients in the Greater Houston Area and beyond.

“We’re excited that Shauna and Todd chose to join us,” said Allan DeLorme, Americas President of Ramboll’s Environment & Health business. “Their addition brings us closer to clients in key geographies in the US and bolsters our bench strength in multiple service lines.”

The engineering firm also announced the opening of a new Mexico City office. The new location will be led by veteran consultant Ivette Catalán León.
