John Kenny Wieber, P.E.


Mr. Wieber joined the firm in 1982 as Chief Mechanical Engineer having at that time 12 years of experience in design and contracting. His experience with the practical aspects of design and installation quickly made Mr. Wieber a key individual in the firm. He was appointed a Principal in 1986. Mr. Wieber’s experience with both contracting and consulting engineering firms allows for a unique insight into the practical implementation of our designs and for a thoroughly knowledgeable participation in the construction administration process.

Mr. Wieber oversaw and coordinated the firm’s three mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design teams throughout the design and construction processes.
