George Kevgas, PE, has been named vice president, infrastructure, for the Atlantic region of national architecture, engineering and planning firm Bergmann. Kevgas has been with Bergmann in the Conshohocken, Pennsylvania office for six years. He served as a project manager and Rail Practice leader, coordinating both design and construction infrastructure projects from inception to completion. In his new role, Kevgas oversees all road and highway, bridges, rail and transit practices in the Atlantic region. He will remain based in the Conshohocken office, one of Bergmann’s two offices in the Philadelphia region.
“My career has been dedicated to creating an improved infrastructure network along the East Coast,” said Kevgas. “I look forward to helping Bergmann serve as a major contributor to the building and maintaining of the Atlantic region’s highways, bridges, and rails and, in doing so, becoming the employer of choice for engineers in the region.”
Kevgas’ experience includes bridge design and inspection, railroad project management and construction services with a primary focus on railroad and bridge transportation projects. He has 18 years of diversified experience in the fields of structural engineering, project management and construction management. His expertise has been instrumental in the successful completion of dozens of projects with Bergmann, including ongoing track and bridge projects for CSXT and Amtrak and highway bridge inspections and replacements throughout the Northeast.
“As soon as he joined Bergmann, George hit the ground running as a key player in countless projects of various scopes and specialties,” said Bergmann president and CEO, Pete Giovenco, P.E. “His diverse experience in managing all the moving parts of complex infrastructure projects, as well as his passion for designing and executing innovative plans, will be an asset to Bergmann and our clients as George takes on this new role.”
Projects that Kevgas and his team are working on include the Bayview North Clearance Improvement Project to get double stack rail transport clearance for CSXT through Philadelphia and Darby Borough, the replacement of Bridge 163 in Montgomery County, and the recently awarded replacement of bridges over Bieber Creek and Monocacy Creek for PennDOT District 5 in Berks County.
