Standish (December 8, 2016) – Jason Fisher, PE, and Todd Bonzelet, PE recently joined Surveying Solutions, Inc. (SSI) as Lead Transportation Engineers based out of satellite offices in Metro Detroit and Traverse City respectively. Both Fisher and Bonzelet occupied similar roles before coming to SSI and each have over fifteen years of experience in the industry.
A licensed Engineer in Michigan, Fisher graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Master’s degree in civil engineering. Jason has an extensive MDOT background with a wide range of experience in construction and has successfully delivered innovative contracts for MDOT. At SSI, Fisher is involved with managing inspection and testing operations as well as modeling and constructability assessment. By reviewing the constructability of 3D models, Jason is able to identify potential issues before construction begins, allowing time for proper plan revisions and alternatives to be investigated and incorporated.
A licensed Engineer in Michigan, Bonzelet graduated from Michigan Technological University with a Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. Todd has an extensive MDOT background with a wide-range of experience in design including numerous rural and urban complex freeways both from a design bid-build and design build process. Todd has a very strong background in MDOT plan development including 3D modeling and is well versed in the MDOT RID process. At SSI, Todd is involved with reviewing survey deliverables for content and consistency and reviewing plans for errors or constructability issues. Todd is able to develop independent 3D models through SSI’s virtual constructability process that can validate the contract documents and RID files provided by designers.
