List of Projects

Over the 17 years of working in the Engineering consulting industry I have enjoyed working on a large number of diverse projects.  These projects include multi-residential developments, resorts, hospitals, banks and credit unions, commercial developments and strip malls, restaurants, supermarkets, schools and trade shops, assisted living facilities, natatoriums, Churches, institutions, and industrial facilities.  In some instances projects may include elements of more than one type of listed facility.  Since 2000 I specialized in renovation, restoration and re-engineering of existing facilities related to pipe failure, replacement of piping systems, and Building System’s Plant and nfl jackets for men wholesale Energy upgrades.  I have also performed engineering research as well as producing an expert witness report on behalf of BCBC.  A partial list of these projects follows with some highlights, and a more comprehensive list available upon request.
