Joe Berns

Vice President, Senior Engineer

Profile Picture

Joe Berns has more than two decades of experience as a project manager and engineer for remedial and industrial projects including design, specification, remedial cost engineering, and construction management. He managed the design and construction of interim removal action measures at a former cement plant conducted with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality oversight. The interim work involved construction of 3,500 feet of cement-kiln-dust leachate-collection trenches, lift stations, and forcemain piping along Lake Michigan within a residential development and a municipal park using design-build and design-bid-build project delivery. Joe has also worked on projects at crude-oil pipeline terminals, railcar-unloading facilities, and petroleum refineries.
