Professional Experience
Gene’s career in the civil construction industry began over 30 years ago with the City of Corpus Christi in their Engineering Department. In his 25 years with the City, he held positions such as General Foreman, Senior Maintenance Supervisor and Contract Administrator. Since retirement, Gene’s experience in street and utility maintenance and construction landed him with AG|CM where he serves as the Senior Civil Construction Inspector for the South Texas Region. In this capacity, he primarily performs project inspections, supervises construction projects, and interprets and applies code requirements to assure compliance. Gene functions as a Liaison between the Developers, Engineers, Architects, Property Owners, Contractors, and Project Managers regarding specifications, provisions, and city standards to resolve issues, conflicts, complaints, and any problems which may arise on these projects. The projects include Capital Improvement Projects, Development Projects and encroachments. His vast experience with the interpretation of plans and specifications and testing and field measurements has been valuable, as well as his working knowledge of civil, structural and environmental design techniques, tools, and principals involved in production of such plans, specifications, and estimates. Additionally, his grasp on federal and state construction practices and guidelines, his ability and eagerness to work well with personnel at all levels of development activity, along with his attention to detail has been instrumental to Gene in managing projects such as ADA Bus Stops, City of Corpus Christi Realignment of Chaparral Street and Harris County Toll Road Authority. Gene has OSHA 10 Hour and Confined Space Entry Training, and is LGPP Certified and a TXDOT Pre-Certified Construction Superintendent.
