Focus on sotrm water pollution and environmental risk management
Assistant Resident Engineer, QSD, CPESC (Former Employee) – Santa Rosa and Sonoma Coast, Oakland Bay Bridge – December 12, 2014
Worked in driect oversite of all daily construction operations ranging from: driving steel "H" beam piles for the Oakland Bay Bridge West Bound Offramp super structure, performing storm water pollution prevention design and implementation evaluations, concrete and asphalt cement paving, soldier pile / timber lagging wall construction,
environmental permitting compliance as applied in the construction process. 37 years in the Construction industry has provided much experience and understanding in making the construction process as seamless as possible by managing people, schedules and resources proficiently.
The hardest part of the job is the politics involved between the Owners of the project and the Contractors. The hardest part is interfacing between the Owner of the Project and the Contractor, negotiating submittal and scheduling issues, delays and change orders.
The most enjoyable part of the job is to watch large projects rise up out of the ground, over 150 feet in the air and tie into an existing Bridge structure. Or, to provide a meeting of the minds between Owners, Contractors, and State and Public entities on a project, in order to move ahead in a profitable and timely manner; working through the red tape of the entire Construction / Design Build process.
Sense of pride and satisfaction seeing large projects being built.
Commuting in the Bay Area.
