Joseph P. Gill, P.E. - President, CEO

Joe's experience reflects a unique history of leadership roles in the public and private engineering arena that gives him an intimate insight into the challenges that our clients face. His 17 years of project experience with the Massachusetts Highway Department and Massachusetts Turnpike Authority gave him exposure to virtually every conceivable type of bridge project. He guided these projects from inception, through planning, permitting, design, construction, operation and maintenance. As Chief Engineer of the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority, Joe was responsible for all engineering and construction, exclusive of the Central Artery Project, and for the maintenance and operation of the entire Turnpike roadway including completed portions of the CAT. As the State Bridge Engineer of Massachusetts Highway Department, Joe had overall responsibility for the design of all new bridges, the rehabilitation and repair of all State owned bridges and for the inspection and evaluation of all State and municipally owned structures. In 2000, after a successful career in the public sector, Joe founded Gill Engineering Associates. With a focus on bridge engineering and design, Gill Engineering Associates quickly earned the respect of state transportation clients, as well as the contractor community.

As President and Chief Executive Officer of Gill Engineering Associates, Joe establishes the vision and sets the strategic direction for the firm. He incorporates his knowledge of state transportation projects into the work performed by the firm. As Principal-In-Charge, he plots the course of all projects in the office. Joe's experience, combined with a solid technical knowledge of structural engineering theory and codes, gives him an ability as Project Manager to produce sound bridge projects that achieve client goals, comply with regulatory requirements and are constructible. The result for our clients is a project experience that progresses smoothly and methodically through all phases without surprises.
