For the past twenty-eight years I have worked in the design and construction industry as a Division Head, Project Manager, Engineer Diver, Field Inspector, Staff Engineer and Draftsman. I have extensive experience in structural and architectural design incorporating structural steel, reinforced concrete, timber, and aluminum. This experience has been applied to the design of many building, piers, wharfs, marinas, ferry landings and ferry terminals. My ability to evaluate existing structures through topside and underwater inspections, as well as materials sampling and testing techniques, has provided clients with cost effective designs for reuse of structural elements during rehabilitation design efforts. My experience with above and underwater construction techniques and construction monitoring allows me to provide the client with accurate designs that are constructible and within budgets. Through my work in the metro region ferry industry, I have become an expert in ADA design for waterfront and ferry transportation facilities.
