Jeff Wasserloos, PE, Sr. Director

San Francisco Office, California and Phoenix Office, Arizona

PMA People: Jeff WasserloosWhat current project(s) are you working on?
Currently working at the San Francisco International Airport on a $75M Design-Build Project to upgrade the existing Industrial Wastewater Treatment Plant (IWWTP). The IWWTP treats industrial wastewater and first-flush stormwater runoff from airport facilities including runways and taxiways.

What is your career highlight at PMA, so far?
Three projects come to mind where I served in a key role as Construction Manager for our client.

  1. City of Phoenix 91st Ave WWTP UP01 – $160M CM@Risk project to construct a new 30MGD WWTP expansion.
  2. San Francisco Public Utilities Commission: East Segment Pipeline – $55M construction project to install 7 miles of 78” water transmission pipeline and other facilities in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains.
  3. San Francisco international Airport: Mel Leong Industrial Wastewater Treatment Plant – $75M project to upgrade existing facilities at SFO.

What is something new or innovative happening in your industry?
Although not new to the industry, many public sector clients are slowly choosing to use alternative project delivery methods including CM@Risk, Design-Build, and Job Order Contracting. PMA’s extensive use in delivering successful projects using these methods puts us in the forefront with these clients to advise them on best practices and management throughout the project life-cycle.

What university or college did you graduate from?
BS Civil Engineering from The University of New Hampshire.
Certificate from Northeastern in Construction Management.

What is your favorite local establishment/feature (restaurant, museum, stadium, etc.)?
Favorite stadiums would be Fenway (non-obstructed view seat) and of course Gillette Stadium, home of the World Champion New England Patriots. Favorite get-away spot is San Diego / Mission Beach. Beach cruisers and $3 Fish Tacos at the Coaster saloon. Can’t beat it!

Fun Facts?
Recent celebrity sighting–Dustin Pedroia, aka “Pedey”. I saw him trying to look inconspicuous while shopping during Thanksgiving at our local grocery store. I gave him the obligatory silent nod, wink, and thumbs up!
