The National Steel Bridge Alliance welcomes Jeff Carlson, P.E., as its Western Regional Director. Carlson is responsible for working with state DOTs, bridge design consultants and construction professionals in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming and providing technical and project assistance and communicating the many advantages - from design flexibility to cost savings - that structural steel brings to bridge projects.
“Jeff’s background adds another dimension and a fresh perspective to the NSBA team,” said Bill McEleney, NSBA’s managing director. “His experience dealing directly with owners will surely be appreciated by our DOT colleagues as we work to better quantify the life-cycle advantages of steel bridges.”
Carlson brings more than a decade of project management and engineering experience to NSBA. Most recently he was a financial analyst and project manager for Omni Development Corporation in Denver, where he was responsible for managing real estate redevelopment projects which included overseeing several construction professionals, providing financial recommendations and developing budgets for presentation to the owner. Prior to that, he was a research analyst for Cornerstone Real Estate Advisors in Hartford, Conn. Before entering the real estate market, he worked for six years as a professional engineer and project manager for Martin/Martin Consulting Engineers in Lakewood, Colo.
He earned a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Denver, a Master of Science in Structural Engineering degree from the University of Texas at Austin and a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree from Colorado State University.
Carlson resides in Englewood, Colo., and can be reached at 720.440.3011 or email@example.com. To view a map of NSBA staff’s territories, visit the NSBA website homepage (www.steelbridges.org).
