Alexander Conroy, EIT
Structural Engineer II

Alex has over 7 years of construction management experience in the heavy highway and heavy industrial sectors. He has been actively involved on several multi-million-dollar projects, from conception to completion, for clients such as the Ohio Department of Transportation, Ohio Turnpike, and Northeastern Ohio Sewer District. His previous projects range from a $300k emergency bridge beam repair to a $30 million design-build project for improving and modernizing the I-77 and I-490 interchange, near Broadway Avenue.

Alex is a Cleveland born native, growing up in the southern suburbs of Parma, Ohio. After graduating from Valley Forge Highschool in 2012, he attended Ohio University in Athens Ohio, and obtained his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. He graduated cum laude in 2016 and moved back to the Cleveland area where he began working as a field engineer for a local general contractor. Because of his passion for carpentry and design, Alex decided to make a transition from construction management to structural design, and hopes to utilize all of his previous experiences to make everlasting impacts and relationships with his current and future clients.

Alex currently lives on the west side of Cleveland with his soon-to-be wife, Katie, and pets, Thor and Jarvis.
