Bob has not only served his clients and the firm well over the years but has also managed to dedicate time to his on-going professional development. Along with being an Accredited LEED AP BD+C from the US Green Building Council, Bob has earned his Well AP from the International Well Building Institute, is a certified Fitwel Ambassador from the Center for Active Design, and a Certified Passive House Designer from the Passive House Institute. Additionally, he has received his Living Future accreditation from the Living Future Institute as well as certification in Level 1 Thermography from the Infrared Training Center. Bob’s professionalism and commitment to engineering excellence make him a role model to younger engineers and serve to encourage the entire staff.

Distinguished collaborations and notable projects mark Bob’s project portfolio. Further, his passion for historic buildings has culminated in systems design for landmark and historically significant buildings across the country, including the Facilities Expansion and Enhancement of The Frick Collection and the Restoration of the Jefferson Rotunda at the University of Virginia. Bob has also completed several unique projects in collaboration with the National Park Service (NPS). Specifically, his NPS portfolio includes the Pullman National Monument in Chicago, IL, the Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument in Wilberforce, OH, and the Thomas Cole House in Catskill, NY.

Bob holds an MS and BS from Pennsylvania State University and is a registered Professional Engineer in both Connecticut and New York. He is an active member of industry organizations such as The Association for Preservation Technology International (APTI), The Association for Preservation Technology NE Chapter (APTNE), Preservation Connecticut, the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP).
