Jim is a VP and Partner with us here at Civilitude and has been doing civil engineering work for over 30 years. His specialties lie in overall project planning, platting, construction administration and overall engineering project management of land development projects. Originally from the East Coast, he ventured down to Austin in 1985 and officially settled here in 2004. Since then, he has become a major part of Austin’s development, holding positions on the City’s Planning Commission and the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce. That’s why we were lucky enough to have him join the team back in 2016. If you ask Civilitude’s CEO Fayez Kazi, Jim’s brand is “everybody knows Jim Schissler.” And here’s why you should, too.

Jim is not only cool for riding a motorcycle to work (an electric one at that) and being a member of the Hill Country Conservancy. He’s also cool because he plays a massive role in some of the most innovative and modern projects in downtown Austin. One of the projects that he is most proud to have worked on is the redevelopment of the Green Water Treatment Plant in the Seaholm District, pictured above. If you’ve ever taken a stroll under that bridge, I’m sure you’ll join us in giving him a big round of applause for that one! Another important project he worked on was the Guadalupe Neighborhood Development Corporation’s Jeremiah House which provided housing and support for 35 single mothers. And those are just two examples!

If you can’t already tell, we feel very lucky to have Jim on the Civilitude team. He adds so much to the culture around here and is also a civil engineering legend that makes us look good! If you ever see a new development in progress around downtown, he probably has something to do with it. Thanks for all you do, Jim!
