Project Manager Joe Silvestri has built his career at Barnard. He interned with the Company throughout college, estimating at our headquarters during the school year and moving to the field each summer. Since earning his degree in Construction Engineering Technology, he has worked in urban and remote rural environments on projects as diverse as constructability review on an innovative underwater sanitary sewer system, a $600 million dust mitigation program, the redevelopment of the 100-year-old Snoqualmie Falls hydroelectric facility, and the reconstruction of penstock at a logistically challenging location in British Columbia. At the Snoqualmie Falls Hydroelectric Redevelopment Project, he managed the overall project mechanical packages, including turbine and generator subcontractor and the balance of plant mechanical, as well as penstock coating and lining, and CPM Schedule for the entire job. He and his team recently completed design and construction of Barnard’s Eisenhower Johnson Memorial Tunnels Fixed Fire Suppression Project, the first of this critical type of retrofit in the U.S., in the mountains west of Denver, Colorado.
