Located in Chicago, Tom has over 20 years of diverse project experience in civil and geotechnical engineering for hydroelectric power and dams. His work has included the planning, analysis, design, and construction of hydroelectric projects, dams, locks, tunnels and pipelines, earth work, transmission lines, and substations.
His expertise also covers regulatory compliance and risk analyses—including potential failure mode analyses and semi-quantitative risk assessments—for temporary construction and permanent design conditions.
A vice president on our Energy team, Tom helps to lead projects as well as the teams of professional engineers working on them. His project experience includes serving as lead geotechnical engineer for four new hydroelectric plants on the Ohio River and most recently, acting as project manager for the ongoing Red Rock Hydroelectric Project on the Des Moines River, in Pella, Iowa.
