CMT Engineering Laboratories
Construction Materials Testing Engineer

Researched new concrete mix designs with a focus on increasing quality. Provided subject matter expertise for construction materials: gravities, soil, asphalt and concrete testing quality and performance. Provided microscopic research of air void systems in concrete. Analyzed tested results and made conclusions. Managed new concrete mix design project. Communicated with a wide range of laborers.

HARPER PRECAST
Quality Control Inspector

Led inspection efforts for concrete production of noise walls, posts, MSE panels, barriers, and other structures, ensuring the highest quality as well as compliance with strict industry/government standards. Tested concrete in the field and lab settings. Inspected production for evidence of faulty construction, mixing, and specifications. Read technical drawings and calculated concrete needs for production. Communicated with a wide range of laborers, ensuring understanding in a multi-language environment focused on rapid product delivery.Identified mistakes in both technical drawings of MSE panels/barriers and work implementation, providing corrective actions that improved production.
* Proactively tested concrete and determined ways to enhance quality of the concrete mix.
* Established a more efficient method of planning and executing daily plant production as well as more efficient inspection techniques, increasing both quality and quantity of materials produced.

STAKER PARSONS COMPANIES
Quality Control Technician

Provided subject matter expertise for concrete quality, testing, and performance. Conducted daily field tests on concrete and initiated laboratory experiments on broken cylinders, cement components, and new technologies. Researched new mix designs with a focus on increasing quality.Initiated research that resulted in a new air producing polymer that strengthened concrete mix design while reducing the cost of polymer 8 times.
* Spearheaded research that resulted a new superplasticizer 30-30 that strengthened concrete mix 17% to 22% and reduced the cost of superplasticizer in concrete 10% to 15%.

Owner / General Manager

Developed new European technology using fly-ash cement and superplasticizers in concrete, reducing cement content in mix by 15% to 25% to lower total concrete cost 5% to 10%.
* Researched, wrote, and published 3 technical manuals for using acrylic polymer P-11 in concrete systems, facilitating the establishment of a new system for repairing cracked and broken concrete that saved 50% to 70% compared to replacement costs with similar quality.
* Improved concrete durability 20% to 30% and strength 50% to 100% by initiating research on new components/additives and recommending better quality mix designs.
* Analyzed the composition of polishing stones and developed a new composite for making polishing stones for industrial use consisting of regular cement, carbon or regular sand, and acryl-polymer. New technology could save as much as 50% off prices of polishing stones.
Defended and published Scientific Work of PhD: "Influence of concrete additives to concrete quality, using fly-ash in cement systems." Published 8 scientific articles annually based on personal laboratory and field research, including Russian and Estonian scientific journals.

Career Note: Additional employment includes Laborer with Dean Murray Construction, Selling Manager with Elastra Kattematerjali, Technical Director with A.U.M.A., and Senior Scientist / Manager of Study Laboratory with Tallinn Technical University. Full details available on request.
