Chief Principal Consultant

A highly skilled team leader who consults on the toughest underground engineering challenges, Marya provides geotechnical and environmental services on commercial development, higher education, and infrastructure projects. She guides clients from conceptual design through construction, focusing on deep foundations and excavations in dense urban areas. In every project, Marya prioritizes building strong multidisciplinary teams and collaborating with owners, architects, structural engineers, and construction managers to manage risks and reduce costs. 

In addition to working on projects across the country, Marya has led projects that have transformed the city of Boston, including the Parcel 12 Air Rights project over the Mass Turnpike in the Back Bay, the development of the South Boston Seaport, and college and university campus expansions.
