David Brammeier graduated from the SIUE School of Engineering in 1975 with a degree in Urban and Environmental Engineering, a program that is now part of the Department of Civil Engineering. Brammeier recalls, "There were many excellent engineering professors guiding the program, one of which was Steve Hanna."
By 1975, Brammeier had worked four years for George Crawford and Associates, which at that time was a division of Alan M. Voorhees and Associates, a recognized leader in the field of Transportation and Traffic Engineering. In 1977, Brammeier rejoined George Crawford and Associates, and the firm was reorganized as Crawford, Bunte, Brammeier. Crawford currently serves as chief executive officer. The firm provides transportation and traffic engineering services to private clients and public agencies within the St. Louis Metro Area.
He served the village of Glen Carbon as an elected board member from 1977 to 2005 and as a member of the Village Plan Commission for five years. "The educational background I received at SIUE, along with the years served in public office, have been instrumental in my career as a consultant in private practice," Brammeier said.
