Nate prioritizes coming up with creative solutions to solve complex geotechnical engineering challenges. He feels inspired when he passes buildings and bridges that he’s worked on, remembering how his teams collaborated and how he contributed. For more than a decade, Nate has consulted with private- and public-sector clients on essential projects in the real estate development, higher education, healthcare, government infrastructure, and transportation markets. These projects have spanned the country, from New England to the mid-Atlantic states to Montana to the San Francisco Bay Area.
For these projects, Nate has managed complex subsurface exploration programs, designed skyscraper and bridge foundations and other earth-supported structures, and installed and monitored geotechnical instrumentation near highly sensitive public structures to protect them during demolition and below-grade construction. No matter what the work entails, he starts by putting himself in his clients’ shoes to understand their big-picture goals and challenges. He can then tailor his consultation to fit their needs, achieving the best value for the project.
“Being a consultant is not just about performing calculations and reporting the results. It’s about taking a nuanced approach and providing recommendations that appropriately balance the client’s risk tolerance, schedule, and budget.”
