GEI Consultants, Inc., one of the nation’s leading geotechnical, environmental, water resources, and ecological science and engineering firms has announced that Varoujan Hagopian, P.E., F.ASCE, has joined the firm as a senior consultant.
Hagopian will assume a key leadership role with GEI’s growing waterfront and coastal engineering services practice. During his 36-year career, Hagopian has completed hundreds of notable projects both nationally and internationally.
“Varoujan brings substantial knowledge of the complexities of waterfront and coastal work to GEI,” said Fred Johnson, a GEI senior vice president and east region manager. “His experience further strengthens our commitment to providing our many public and private clients a deep portfolio of planning, engineering, and scientific services as each confronts the immediate challenges of extreme weather, while visioning together long-term sustainable solutions to sea level rise and climate change. We’re proud to add him to our firm.”
A former principal with Sasaki Associates, Inc. and most recently a private consultant, Hagopian has managed, designed, value engineered, and completed projects involving mixed-use waterfront developments, parks, marinas, islands, shoreline and edge stabilization, river and lake engineering, wharfs, piers, canals, sea walls, breakwaters, commuter and ferry boat facilities, cruise ship piers, and flood and harbor protection structures. He often directs all aspects of services on a project from feasibility and early planning, to detailed design, permitting, and on to final construction.
“I’m thrilled to once again have the opportunity to collaborate with a team of professionals leading the way in innovative, forward-thinking solutions to today’s myriad of waterfront and coastal challenges,” announced Hagopian. “This experienced group is in prime position to offer more clients peace of mind when it comes to protecting land, property, and infrastructure in smart, cost-effective ways.”
