Brian Chain

Brian is presently serving as Avista’s Downtown Network Area Engineer in Spokane, Washington. Brian’s first day as a design engineer started with a crew that had already been on-site for three months and still didn’t have any drawings. Fifteen years later, Brian has personally led nearly $90M in substation and distribution capital projects, often while also performing as the primary design resource. Brian has developed a focus on bringing varied stakeholders together to create common understanding about standards, processes, and goals.
