Jared Krause, PE
Project Manager, New York City Special Inspections

Jared Krause, PE, was the Assistant Resident Engineer and Senior Inspector on the staged rehabilitation of three 220-foot-long, double-leaf Bascule bridges with steel girder approach spans in Wilmington, DE. Typically a Bridge Design Engineer stationed in the firm’s New Jersey office, this was his first field assignment. As a kid, Jared was always building things with his hands. This, coupled with his design knowledge, allowed him to quickly adapt to the work. “Being able to work on a construction project for 18 months was invaluable,” he said. “It’s given me a new perspective on the field of engineering.” He believes that all design engineers can benefit from working in the field because of the real-world perspective they gain. “You could be the best engineer in the world but when you come to the field, if you don’t have common sense, you’re not going to be very successful.”
