GEI Consultants Appoints New Vice President

GEI Consultants, Inc., one of the nation’s leading geotechnical, environmental, water resources, and ecological science and engineering firms, has announce that Dr. Jesús E. Gómez, P.E., D.GE., has joined the firm as a vice president to help lead the firm’s geostructural and geotechnical practice and expand their services in the Philadelphia region.

Dr. Gómez brings 30 years of design and construction experience in geotechnical projects in the United States, South America, and the Caribbean. He has been the lead designer for numerous design and research projects of importance that incorporate technological advancements such as Micropiles, Soil Nailing, Single Bore Multiple Anchors (SBMA), Compressive Anchors, and Removable Anchors. He has extensive experience in design of deep foundations and excavation support, and has completed ground-breaking work on numerical modeling of soil-structure systems.

Prior to joining GEI, Dr. Gómez was a principal at Schnabel Engineering, Inc., and a Chief Engineer for the Venezuelan Branch of Franki Foundations. At Schnabel, Dr. Gómez acted as the Lead Designer responsible for the remediation of the movements of the Seawall and North Plaza of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C., and for the remediation of the seawalls around Ellis Island in the New York harbor.

He directed the design of 30- to 55-ft deep excavations for construction of the award-winning Automated People Mover Transfer Stations at the Tier 1 project at Dulles International Airport, with a total area of soil nailed-excavation support of approximately 200,000 sf.

Additionally, he was the Lead Senior Engineer for the design of over 1,200 micropiles, plus more than 50,000 sf of temporary and permanent soil nail walls at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. He conceived and developed a micropile foundation system for a 2,800-foot long viaduct located in a highly seismic zone near Caracas, Venezuela, which is a landmark in the development of micropile technology in South America.

Dr. Gómez holds both a doctorate and master’s degree in civil engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the Universidad Católica Andrés Bello (Caracas, Venezuela).
