Ryan Nataluk

Bridge Inspection Program Manager

Denver, Colorado

Awarded ENR Magazine’s “Top 20 under 40” Engineering Excellence Award in 2011, Ryan is a professional engineer who knows how to stay on the leading edge of his field. An expert in structure asset management and preventative maintenance activities, Ryan has employed both traditional and innovative inspection methods—from mechanical equipment to rope access climbing.

Currently serving as our Bridge Inspection discipline leader and overall Inspection Program manager (for nationwide bridge services), Ryan’s a certified engineer in nine states and has 19 years of experience. Throughout his career, he’s performed and managed inspections in 16 states as well as in Canada.

Serving as project manager for bridge inspections across both Colorado and Nevada, focusing mostly in Colorado, Ryan has worked on many breathtaking projects including the O’Callaghan-Tillman (Hoover Dam Bypass) bridge, where he climbed approximately 2,000 feet of bridge to provide arm’s length inspections for difficult-to-reach areas. On complex projects such as fracture critical bridge and dam intake inspections, Ryan has combined confined space methods with rope access techniques and non-destructive testing.

Ryan continues to perform duties as a senior team leader for complex and fracture critical inspection projects. Prolonging structure life expectancy is his goal, and he’s conducted numerous talks and seminars on the topic around Colorado and the US.


Bridge inspections by rope—in my article “High Over Hoover Dam” published in the October 2013 issue of Civil Engineering Magazine explores a first-hand view of this field of bridge inspection.
