Project Experience

Transportation – Mr. Heminover has worked on a number of large-scale heavy civil transit projects, ranging from $50M to $1.2B. These projects were complex in nature as their scopes included utilities, retaining walls, passenger stations, bridges, roadways, landscaping, track, and systems infrastructure. Much of the work was within tight corridors adjacent to live train traffic and near restricted environmental areas. Not only was Mr. Heminover actively involved in managing the construction of these projects, but he was also involved in the development and refinement of the project’s cost, schedule, and document control processes.

Utilities – From coordinating third-party utility relocations to managing installation of large-diameter sewer, water, and storm drain systems, Mr. Heminover aided in the management of nearly $40M worth of utility work. His schedule management and stakeholder coordination skills fostered collaboration between different project disciplines allowing construction to progress more efficiently without disconnect between project team members.

Passenger Stations – Mr. Heminover was involved in the development stage of a passenger station design. He worked closely with the owner, designer, and subcontractors to develop a cost-effective design that not only reduced the construction cost of the stations but also limited future maintenance costs as well.

Structures – As a structures field engineer, Mr. Heminover was responsible for managing the construction of over 100,000 square feet of retaining walls, the replacement of nine bridges, and the rehabilitation of seven bridges. He worked closely with the superintendents and foremen monitoring crew productions, identifying problem areas, and acknowledging team successes. He produced detailed work packages addressing safety, quality, cost, schedule, and procurement and staging of material and equipment.
