Bryan Evangelista, a San José State University civil engineering graduate (’14) and Air Force ROTC cadet who was commissioned in Dec. 2014, has been interning with Whiting-Turner since summer 2014. Lt. Col. Douglas Lomsdalen, the chair of Aerospace Studies in the College of Applied Sciences and Arts, helped him work with his schedule to allow him to intern with Whiting-Turner, where he was assigned to the Stanford Building Conversion and Piping Team in Palo Alto.
Evangelista has been hired on as a full-time employee with the company in January and he will continue his work with the company until he enters active duty as an Air Force Civil Engineer at Seymour Johnson AFB, North Carolina later this year.
His team worked on converting legacy steam systems to hot water systems in mechanical rooms across the private university’s campus. The team was identified as the Whiting-Turner team of the quarter for the fourth quarter of 2014.
According to a newsletter from Whiting-Turner, the team worked in 42 different mechanical rooms at once and installed 20 miles of underground pipe.
