Award-Winning Project Engineer Joins RS&H CEI Team

By Susan Lake

December 9, 2020

Jeff-Sullivan, PE, an award-winning project engineer joins RS&H’s construction management team.

Jeff Sullivan, PE has joined RS&H, one of the nation’s leading engineering, architecture and consulting firms, to help lead the firm’s construction, engineering and inspection (CEI) group in Northeast Florida.

Jeff brings extensive experience managing large-scale heavy civil construction projects along the East Coast, including the $1.5 billion Midtown Tunnel in Portsmouth, VA, where he was a Superintendent and Assistant Project Manager for the signature P3 project.

Prior to coming to RS&H, Sullivan worked for a Fortune 500 and Engineering News Record Top 5 contracting company, where he was recognized as Project Manager of the Year and was continuously called on to manage some of the most distinctive projects in the company’s portfolio. This includes the safety-focused VA Midtown Tunnel project, which included a new two-laned immersed tube tunnel under the Elizabeth River and required extremely intricate sourcing and materials coordination. Sullivan also managed the award-winning Haulover Bridge project in Miami. The bridge reconstruction was incredibly challenging due to both the high-water velocity from fluctuating tides as well as the maintenance of traffic requirements to minimize impacts to travelers.

“Jeff’s track record of implementing innovative construction solutions and his passion for efficiency and partnership is going to provide an additional level of service to our clients,” said George Miller, PE, RS&H’s CEI Florida State Leader. “We’re also excited for the opportunities he will create for our existing CEI staff.”

Sullivan will use his decade of experience on the contractor side to manage all aspects of RS&H’s transportation construction projects in the Northeast Florida region, including staff coordination, quality assurance, schedule review, cost estimating, and issue tracking and resolution. He will make an immediate impact on team building between our clients, staff, and contractors to identify and resolve potential project issues.

“My work ethic is proactive, and my approach is based on partnership. That’s how I’ve been successful,” said Sullivan. “I don’t let an issue come back to bite us. I find the problems and address them by partnering with the client and contractors and building ideal teams that are capable of keeping projects on track.”

“We are excited to have Jeff Sullivan join CM and continuing our philosophy of seeking out experienced Construction Engineers, a practice that has proven invaluable to our clients as they bring their Contractor’s perspective to the CEI industry,” said Doug Geiger, RS&H’s Construction Management Practice Director. “Jeff’s passion for building the world has taken him and his family to 10 different project locations in 9 years. We are thrilled he and his family’s next move is to RS&H.”

Sullivan is a professional engineer and holds a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Florida State University. He can be reached at Jeff.Sullivan@rsandh.com, or connect with him on LinkedIn
