REPRESENTATIVE PROJECT EXPERIENCE

  • St. Luke’s East Parking Garage, Chesterfield, Missouri. Field technician/geologist responsible for soil, rock and asphalt density testing, sampling of fresh concrete, and structural masonry inspection including reinforcing steel placement verification, grout sampling, mortar sampling and CMU lab analysis of a multi-story post-tensioned parking garage.
  • Shaw Park Parking Garage, Clayton, Missouri. Field technician/geologist responsible for soil, rock and asphalt density testing and sampling of fresh concrete including reinforcing steel placement verification of a new multi-story post-tensioned parking garage for the city of Clayton.
  • Stonehenge Subdivision, Columbia, Illinois. Field technician/geologist responsible for observation of superspan structure. Observation required the careful measurement of control points inside the superspan structure with surveying equipment to insure no shifting or bowing occurred during backfill operations.
  • Paul Avenue Bridge Replacement, Ferguson, Missouri. Field technician/geologist responsible for observation of replacement of old bridge with new superspan structure. Observation required the careful measurement of control points inside the superspan structure with surveying equipment.
  • Maryland Heights Expressway, Maryland Heights, Missouri. Worked as representative of the City of Maryland Heights. Responsibilities included verification of compliance with MoDOT specifications of the density of base course rock for density and the slump, air content and strength of fresh concrete.
  • Missouri Route 367 Reconstruction, Spanish Lake, Missouri. Managed quarry sampling and laboratory testing of aggregate base course and PCCP aggregates to ensure compliance with MoDOT standards of a 2-mile stretch of Missouri Highway. Testing was part of the infant MoDOT QA/QC program.
  • Florissant Street Repairs, Florissant, Missouri. Responsibilities included hot asphalt compaction testing and sampling as well as supplementary estimation of tonnage of asphalt placed during municipal street overlay operations.
  • St. Luke’s North-South Garage, Chesterfield, Missouri. Field technician/geologist responsible for sampling in-situ concrete for strength and chloride-ion content analysis. Sampling required location of post-tension tendons and reinforcing steel with magnetic induction pachometers prior to coring.
  • North-South Broadway Corridor, St. Louis, Missouri. Worked closely with city BPS inspectors to sample and verify density of asphalt overlay. Project required both compliance with MoDOT standards and 24-hour turn around of test results.
