Growth in 2017: New hires for all trades at DesignTech

Since the start of the year, we have been adding depth to the roster! In the first half of the year, our Leesburg, Virginia office added additional staff in the electrical and plumbing engineering departments. Ken Poulter and Jhonny Suarez Diaz have added a great amount of experience and training to the company as well as a great culture of excellence in their work. 

Ken has over 30 years of experience in the plumbing engineering field; including over 20 years as a studio director and/or plumbing department head. In addition to design expertise of sanitary, water, natural gas, and medical/compressed air systems, his experience has provided him with extensive multi-disciplinary exposure and building code knowledge. He serves with DesignTech as a plumbing designer, project manager, quality control resource, and business development team member. His responsibilities also include development of project specifications and construction administration.

Jhonny has fourteen years of experience in the Electrical Engineering field as both a master electrician and electrical engineer. His experience has provided him extensive knowledge of the National Electrical Code, electrical installations and maintenance, and project troubleshooting. In addition, he has specific experience with development and implementation of method of procedure (MOP) protocols, and assessment of mission-critical infrastructure systems for safeguarding data center uptime. His skills also include assessment of energy consumption for periodic efficiency figures (PUE) as well as whole project data. His responsibilities at DesignTech include building site visits, investigative reports, project engineering, construction administration, development of specifications, cost estimates, and lighting calculations.

Most recently, Ross Lynam has joined our Kensington, MD office as a mechanical engineer. Ross graduated this year from Penn. State University with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering.
