Ted joined ENGEO in 1998, and leads ENGEO’s San Francisco and Oakland offices. He provides geologic, geotechnical, and environmental engineering services on projects including waterfront development along San Francisco Bay, Naval base redevelopments, and numerous large earthwork projects situated in technically challenging hillside conditions. Ted has served various land development projects over soft and highly compressible “Bay Mud” conditions, where surcharge programs and vertical drains were employed to pre-consolidate sites. In addition, Ted has implemented a variety of mitigation approaches to densify and develop projects over liquefiable sites. His experience includes historic building renovations and seismic upgrades, geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring programs, mid-rise structures and below-grade structures in shallow groundwater conditions, large industrial and commercial developments, and emergency facilities. He has served as Geotechnical Engineer for numerous school and hospital projects in accordance with Title 22 of the State of California Code of Regulations. Additionally, he manages various Geologic Hazard Abatement District (GHAD) projects in Contra Costa and Alameda Counties.
“I enjoy the interaction with my colleagues, clients, contractors, and regulators to collaborate and find optimal solutions to difficult projects and situations. Perhaps having nine siblings has shaped my love for teamwork.”
Outside of work you may find Ted outdoors as he is passionate about hiking, biking, fishing, archery, and many other sports.
