Mr. Berkey is a Licensed Professional Engineer in several states and a Level II Certified Design Professional with the Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission and brings a diverse level of experience in planning, civil engineering, project management, permitting and compliance, and construction management.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Arizona in 1989, Mr. Berkey was quickly promoted from Engineer to Senior Engineer with a private consultant and was responsible for the successful planning, design, and permitting of some of the largest residential subdivisions, planned mixed use developments, and commercial site plans in the United States as well as several international projects in Peru and Puerto Rico.
Mr. Berkey then accepted a leadership position with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey as the Team Leader for the planning, design, permitting, and construction compliance of the Redevelopment of the Internal Roadway Network at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. This project included the redesign of the entire roadway network as well as the successful completion of the new monorail system which connects each terminal to long term parking and other off site mass transportation nodes.
Mr. Berkey advanced his career by owning and operating his own Design/Build Engineering and Construction firm. He successfully designed, obtained permits, and completed construction on many residential, commercial, and industrial projects as well as numerous public works infrastructure improvement projects. Several of the projects Mr. Berkey was involved with required design, successful permitting, and construction in and around sensitive State and Federal Jurisdictional Streams and Wetlands. These projects required permitting of stream crossings and wetland mitigation and required significant coordination with State regulators and the United States Army Corp. of Engineers. Mr. Berkey’s company also successfully obtained permits, owned, and operated their own stone quarry.
After selling his business’s assets in 2005, Mr. Berkey re-entered the Private Consulting industry where he again managed the design and construction of residential subdivisions, commercial and industrial site plans, and various public works infrastructure improvement projects. In addition, he also diversified by working in a variety of additional practice areas including preparation of various studies including traffic impact studies, environmental impact statements and studies, stormwater studies, and flood studies.
