With over 28 years of experience in the field of geotechnical engineering and construction testing, he most recently acquired experience working with a construction company. “Working as a contractor gives you a different perspective on how projects are designed and constructed. I now look more closely at the up-front engineering recommendations to ensure practical application and construction feasibility,” he said.
